Six-meter high mudflow engulfs city in Kyrgyzstan

A six-meter high mudflow engulfed the city of Kadamjay, Kyrgyzstan on May 27, 2016.

The mudslides washed away water pipes, partially destroyed roads, uprooted trees, increased the water level in the river by several meters and killed at least 5 residents.
