Yangon, Aug 13 (IANS) The death toll from monsoon landslide in Myanmar’s Mon state rose to 65 on Tuesday, according to latest figures released by the Myanmar Fire Services Department.

“Rescue efforts will be carried out until bodies of all missing ones are found,” a rescuer told Xinhua news agency.

The deadly landslide took place when the mountainside of Ma-lat mountain collapsed due to the monsoon downpour in Paung township on Friday.

Residents, houses and vehicles were swamped by deluge of mud and rocks from the collapse.

Precautionary measures were being taken as there was a risk of more landslides at the area, an official from the Myanmar Fire Services Department had said on Monday.

Due to heavy monsoon rainfall, Paung, Mawlamyine, Mudon, Thanbyuzayat, Kyaikmaraw and Ye towns were flooded and some schools temporarily closed in the town of Paung since Friday.
