Three Die in Storm in Central Argentina

BUENOS AIRES – Three people were killed and about 200 others had to be evacuated when a storm unleashed torrential rains, strong winds and hail on the Argentine city of Cordoba, located about 800 kilometers (nearly 500 miles) west of Buenos Aires, emergency management officials said Tuesday.

The victims include a baby girl killed when a tree fell on her family’s automobile in Cordoba, the capital of the like-named province, provincial emergency management office director Diego Concha told reporters.

A 50-year-old man died when he was swept away by fast-moving floodwaters and a 63-year-old man was killed when he fell and hit his head in a flooded street.

“We have a large number of trees and electrical poles down everywhere, streets cut off, vehicles swept away and household services (water, power, telephone and cable television) interrupted across a good part of the city,” Concha told the official Telam news agency.

The storm, which had winds of nearly 140 kph (87 mph), left many Cordoba neighborhoods without electricity.
