MANAGUA, Nicaragua (AP) — A landslide unleashed by heavy rains has slammed into a home in northern Nicaragua, killing two adults and leaving two children missing and presumed dead.

Leonidas Centeno is the mayor of Jinotega municipality. He says the avalanche of mud, water and uprooted trees swept away the home early Saturday and dragged it for more than 100 meters (109 yards).

The bodies of a 61-year-old man and his 36-year-old wife were recovered. Two daughters ages 13 and 4 were missing.

Authorities say recent rains have caused 10 more deaths, and a red alert is in place in eight of Nicaragua's 17 departments.
