Over 12,000 People Evacuated Due to Floods in Argentina

BUENOS AIRES At least 12,000 people have been evacuated in several provinces in northeastern Argentina due to flooding caused by torrential rains, media reports said on Sunday.

Corrientes and Chaco are the worst-hit areas, with about 5,000 people evacuated in each province.

In Entre Rios, located south of Corrientes, about 900 people have been evacuated, although more than 10,000 people have been affected by the flooding, the official Telam news agency reported.

About 1,500 people were forced from their homes in the central province of Santa Fe due to rising rivers, TN television said.

Northeastern Argentina will continue to be affected by unstable weather conditions until Wednesday, with more rain expected in the region, the weather service said in a special report.

Several parts of Argentina have been hit by flooding in the past few months.

The worst flooding occurred in the northeastern region, known as the Litoral, around Christmas, when about 30,000 people were evacuated from their homes.
