At least nine people have been killed after torrential rain caused a landslide on the northeast flank of the volcano, which tore a 4 km path through the village of Los Angelitos, Nejapa. 60 homes were buried and 75 damaged. Landslides at San Salvador are a known hazard- other destructive events occurred in 1982 and 2001.
