Currently, the search and rescue (SAR) team is still looking for nine others who are still missing.
"The search is constrained by rains and the SAR team needs to be aware of subsequent landslides," the agency said.
According to the Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics Agency, there are still several cracks in the location and subsequent landslides could occur at any time.
In addition, 1,020 people were displaced to avoid subsequent landslides.
The first landslide occurred on January 9 due to high rainfalls and unstable soil conditions. ■
