iStockphoto/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) — At least six people have been killed and more than a dozen were injured in mudslides that struck a mining area in Ecuador.

Six hours of heavy downpours triggered the mudslides and now rescue teams are working to dig out survivors and bodies.

Officials say the search and clean-up operations will likely take three days.
