The hill that towers over Cambray collapsed late Thursday after heavy rains, burying several houses with dirt, mud and rocks. Family members have reported 100 people missing, but the number could be as high as 600 based on at least 100 homes in the area of the slide, said Alejandro Maldonado, executive secretary of Conred, the country's emergency disaster agency.
