Another type of disaster, but this one natural, took place earlier this week in the West African nation of Sierra Leone. It was a mudslide that struck near Freetown, the nation`s capital. The area has gotten more than twice the amount of rain it normally gets this time of year.
CNN`s Stephanie Busari witnessed the search for survivors.
It really is an intense time for this country and people are just mostly standing around in this area, shell-shocked.
They can`t quite get over that this is happening again in a country that has suffered so much tragedy in such a short time, with the war, with Ebola, and now, this. They`re really just asking, why Sierra Leone and why now?
Everywhere you go, there are tales of death and devastation, and hardly, anyone in this country will have -- will not be affected by this very, very tragic event.
