A landslide has destroyed over 10 structures, including houses, in Japan’s northeastern Yamagata Prefecture, resulting in the injury of at least two people, the NHK broadcaster reports.
A man in his 70s and a woman in her 60s were rescued and taken to a hospital after a hillside collapsed in Tsuruoka City early on Saturday, NHK said citing police.
A couple in their 70s and 80s remain unaccounted for.
The landslide hit a cluster of buildings, engulfing more than 10 structures, including houses, according to NHK.
Some local residents have reportedly been told to evacuate.
