This warning from the NMD is reminiscent of the Gouatchie tragedy. Three years ago. On October 29, a landslide was recorded in this area of the city of Bafoussam, capital of the West region. The landslide was more than 1,500 m high and surprised the population at past 10 pm. More than 45 people died in the disaster.
