Officials say at least two people were killed.
Rescue workers say they found one body and were trying to recover the other one.
A truck caught in the flow of mud was pushed off the road. Parts of a highway were also buried neaby
Such incidents are not uncommon in rural Peru, where landslides and avalanches kill dozens of people and destroy hundreds of homes every year.
