No casualties were reported following a massive landslide which wiped out a wing of a hotel in Bolzano, the President of South Tyrol Province Arno Kompatscher confirmed to the press as he arrived at the scene on Tuesday.

Kompatscher added that the premises were evacuated at the moment of disaster as the area fell under the ‘red zone’ classification.

The head of the local Geology office Volkmar Mair added that according to preliminary controls from the air, ‘freeze and thaw’ might have caused the collapse.

Eberle hotel which was hit by the landslide was situated on a mountain around 70 meters above the Bolzano city, near hiking trails.

About the author: Republican
As a Republican I am a conservative but have a little libertarian leanings. I about 80% a Trump supporter. I agree with him most of the time but as I am a person that thinks for himself I don't go along with him just because he is the President. I am not like liberals that think their candidates are Gods and never wrong.
