Heavy rain triggered rock and mud avalanches near the capital Santiago, killing at least two people and leaving one missing, Reuters reported.

The first avalanche buried homes and cars and swept a woman into a river, killing her on Sunday. The victim’s 1-year-old daughter is missing, AP reported the authorities as saying.

A second avalanche at Anglo American’s Los Bronces copper mines wept away buildings, killing a security guard and injuring  at least 10 others.

About 1,500 people , mostly tourists, have been stranded, according to various reports.
