Mocoa (Colombia) - Mudslides killed at least 206 people and left hundreds injured or missing after destroying homes in southern Colombia vans old skool wit leer , officials said Saturday.

They were the latest victims of floods that have struck the Pacific side of South America over recent months, also killing scores of people in Peru and Ecuador.

In the southwestern Colombian town of Mocoa, the surge swept away houses, bridges, vehicles and trees vans old skool wit dames , leaving piles of wrecked timber and brown mud, army images from the area showed.

The mudslides struck late Friday after days of torrential rain in the Amazon basin area town of 40,000.

"The latest information we have is that there are 206 people confirmed dead, 202 injured, 220 missing vans old skool wit , 17 neighborhoods hit hard," Colombian Red Cross chief Cesar Uruena told AFP.

President Juan Manuel Santos visited Mocoa, the capital of Putumayo department, on Saturday to supervise rescue efforts in the heavily forested region.

He declared a public health and safety emergency to speed up rescue and aid operations. He also expressed his condolences to victims' families.

- Nation in mourning -

Putumayo Governor Sorrel Aroca called the development "an unprecedented tragedy" for the area.

There are "hundreds of families we have not yet found and whole neighborhoods have disappeared," he told W Radio.

Carlos Ivan Marquez vans old skool bruin , director of the National Disaster Risk Management Unit, told AFP the mudslides were caused by the rise of the Mocoa River and tributaries.

The rivers flooded causing a "big avalanche," the army said in a statement.

Some 130 millimeters (5 inches) of rain fell Friday night, Santos said. "That means 30 percent of monthly rainfall fell last night, which precipitated a sudden rise of several rivers vans old skool zwart dames ," he said.

He promised earlier on Twitter to "guarantee assistance to the victims of this tragedy, which has Colombians in mourning."

"Our prayers are with the victims and those affected," he added.

- Rescue efforts -

The authorities activated a crisis group including local officials, military personnel, police and rescuers to search for missing people and begin removing mountains of debris vans old skool zwart , Marquez said.

A thousand emergency personnel were helping the rescue effort. Mocoa was left without power or running water; there were reports of some looting in efforts to get water.

"There are lots of people in the streets, lots of people displaced and many houses have collapsed," retired Mocoa resident Hernando Rodriguez, 69, said by telephone.

"People do not know what to do... there were no preparations" for such a disaster vans old skool groen , he said.

"We are just starting to realize what has hit us."

Several deadly landslides have struck Colombia in recent months.

A landslide in November killed nine people in the rural southwestern town of El Tambo, officials said at the time.

A landslide the month before killed 10 people in the north of the country.

Climate change can play a big role in the scale of natural disasters, such as this one, a senior UN official said.

"Climate change is generating dynamics and we see the tremendous results in terms of intensity, frequency and magnitude of these natural effects vans old skool rood dames , as we have just seen in Mocoa," said Martin Santiago, UN chief for Colombia.

BEIJING, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- China's inflation acceleratedfaster than expected in August, but remained mild overall vans old skool rood , leavingpolicy makers room for containing financial leverage and risks.< Fresh data showed Saturday that consumer price index (CPI), amain gauge of inflation, rose to a seven-month high of 1.8 percentin August, compared with July's 1.4 percent, beating marketexpectations of 1.6 percent.
