It's not so much that the about 7500 tons of mountain crashed into the apartment-building, but rather that it slid into the ground/first floor, and the first floor was moved forward - on top of a propane gas tank, which subsequently lit on fire. 5 people are missing, presumed dead, and they can't be searched for in the building because of the danger of explosion. People living in a radius of 500 meters have been evacuated from their homes. There was a 6th person presumed missing - a soldier home on leave - but he returned back to the military service just the night before. Both his parents are among the people missing/dead. :ohmy:
