Quebec landslide: family of four missing

Five other houses evacuated


A family of four is missing after a landslide in a rural town northeast of Montreal, called Saint-Jude, which swept away a house and some cars. The huge crevice left behind meant five other houses had to be evacuated, CTV reports. The house that was swept away came to rest partially in a river; since then, no one has heard from the couple who lived there or their two children. Rescuers have moved to the side of the house after two prior attempts that were called off for safety reasons, and family members gathered nearby to wait for news. Official said counsellors are standing by, and the incident is under investigation.
