Storm Leaves 2 Dead, 10 Missing in Chile

SANTIAGO – The powerful storm that hit central and southern Chile over the weekend killed two people, left 10 others missing and forced 359 residents from their homes, the national emergency management office said Monday.

Nearly two dozen people are being housed in shelters and 429 others were left isolated in the O’Higgins, Metropolitan and Valparaiso regions.

Dina Luisa Alcalde Chavez, 46, and Carlos Saavedra Peńa, 63, were killed by a mudslide triggered by heavy rains in San Jose de Maipo, a city located 57 kilometers (35 miles) southeast of Santiago.

Some 584,526 residences are without drinking water, the majority of them in the capital, one of the areas most affected by the storm, while 26,143 residential customers are still without electricity.

Power outages are still being reported in different parts of the Metropolitan, O’Higgins and Maule regions.

Classes were cancelled on Monday due to the lack of water service at schools.

Teams from different water companies are working to restore water service by 6:00 p.m. Monday, when 100 percent of customers are expected to be back online, water utility Aguas Andinas said.
