A landslide of "vast proportions" reportedly broke away from a rocky ridge in the San Biagio area overlooking the seafront at around 9.30 on Tuesday.

"The Amalfi state road is buried", wrote one witness on social media.

Local mayor Daniele Milano told the Ansa news agency there don't seem to be any victims, according to eyewitness accounts, but it's too soon to exclude the possibility.

"It will take hours to clear the road, and only then can we be sure that there are no victims," Milano said. "We will definitely proceed with the evacuation of houses".

Rubble from the landslide reportedly ended up around houses in the area and reached parts of the seafront.
