I used to fly helicopters over this region circa 1990-91. It rains pretty much every day and averages about 19 mm of rain a day. It is the most rugged terrain imaginable.

I traveled to PNG many years ago with my backpack on my back and went up to Garoka another mountainous terrain with lots of rain. Getting around when it is wet and muddy is very tricky, and this looks even worse than what I endured trekking around in deep mud.

Many prayers to the survivors that they can recover, quickly.

That top photo is shocking in its scale. Poor people. Nothing one can say.

First shots on the news yesterday showed a fresh cliff way above, what looked like half a mountain had split away.
