SOVERATO, Italy (AP) -- Hundreds of workers and police units were searching for missing people among the debris Monday, a day after the rain-swollen waters of a stream swept away a campground in southern Italy, killing at least 11 people.
At least four people were missing, civil defense official Salvatore Mottola said. The chances of finding them alive were "virtually nil," he said.
The sun came out again in southern Italy on Monday after a weekend of heavy rains which left several hamlets there isolated and caused massive floods along the country's coastline.
Before dawn Sunday, a mudslide hit Le Giare campground near the seaside town of Soverato. It turned the site into a sea of mud, flipping over cars, shoving trailers into trees and smashing bungalows.
The campground was filled with disabled people who were vacationing there with their volunteer aides.
