Freetown - Survivors of deadly mudslides in Sierra Leone's capital are vividly describing the disaster as President Ernest Bai Koroma says the nation is in a "state of grief."
Freetown resident Fatmata Kamara says she had come out of her house to use the toilet when she saw the mud and boulders rushing down Monday morning. She says she ran away "almost naked" and was the only member of her family to survive.
Another resident, Ahmed Sesay, compared the sound of the mudslide to an earthquake.
The Red Cross estimates that 600 people are still missing. More than 300 people have died. The government hopes to have an updated death toll by the end of today.
