Heavy rains caused a destructive mudslide in a small village on Italy’s Amalfi coast, resulting in one missing person.

A torrent of water and mud covered cars and flooded streets in the village of Atrani when a small river burst its banks after Thursday’s rains, according to a report by the Associated Press.

The missing person was working in a café in the popular tourist village when she was swept away by the torrent of muddy water.
