BOGOTA, Colombia — Dozens of people have been killed and thousands have abandoned their homes as floods and mudslides ravaged Colombia and Venezuela on Tuesday.
Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos urged nearly 500 people to evacuate from the vulnerable hillside of a poor Medellin suburb where a landslide killed dozens as it buried about 30 homes.
The bodies of 36 victims — at least a third of them children — have been recovered from Sunday's disaster. Authorities said about 90 people remain missing.
