Torrential floods in Chile and Peru

Only the other day I reported on wildfires and drought in Chile. Now this.

Flood torrents devastate Peru and Chile



27 March, 2015

Heavy rains have brought torrential floods and mudslides to parts of Peru and Chile - including the Atacama desert, one of the driest regions of the world.

Several people have been killed, and homes destroyed.

Thousands are without electricity and clean water and the clean-up operation is being hampered by the scale of the destruction.
