Austria landslides amid heavy rain


An unusual amount of rainfall has caused a number of landslides in Austria.

In Salzburg, saturated soil caused a section of forest to slide down a bank into the road below.

Local geologist Gerald Valentin described a "cracking" sound as the trees collapsed.

Meanwhile in Styria, four people were evacuated when mud buried one home's terrace.
