As feared by geologists more debris with gravel and mud fell to the Bondasca valley two days after the tremendous landslide in Graubünden.
Rescue workers who were seeking eight missed people in the higher mountain regions could be brought to safety in time police reported on Friday. Among the missing were four Germans from the German state Baden-Württemberg as the police explained. There was rare hope of finding them alive. The new gravel and mud masses again pushed past the village of Bondo which had just escaped a catastrophe on Wednesday. Geologists had warned that further rock rifts could be expected at the Piz Cengalo 3369 meters high. There four million cubic meters of rock had broken off on Wednesday in the summit area and thundered into the Bondasca valley. Shortly thereafter the mudflow pushed for miles into the valley.
