ITALY — Landslide: A house was left standing on the edge of a landslide in Casamicciola, on the southern Italian island of Ischia, on Sunday. Exceptionally heavy rain caused a chunk of Mount Epomeo to come crashing down before dawn on Saturday, gaining speed as it entered the populated port town of Casamicciola, where it demolished buildings and carried cars and buses into the sea leaving at least eight people dead and more missing. Some 30 houses were inundated by the mud and water, and more than 200 residents in the town of 8,300 remain homeless, according to officials.
