Cold Wave Claims Second Victim in Uruguay

MONTEVIDEO – The cold wave affecting Uruguay and the Southern Cone has claimed a second victim, the press reported Sunday.

A 40-year-old man who was sleeping in the woods outside Durazno, a city in central Uruguay, died on Saturday, a day when the temperature dipped below freezing in some parts of the country.

A man died on Thursday from exposure in the eastern province of Rocha.

The frigid temperatures have boosted electricity and gas consumption, as well as demand for heaters, the El Pais newspaper reported.

The cold wave stretches from southern Argentina and Chile to Bolivia, Paraguay, southern Peru and Brazil’s Amazon region, and it is associated with a rare high-pressure system that stalled over Argentina’s Buenos Aires province and Uruguay.

A severe weather alert has been issued, but temperatures are expected to rise on Sunday, the Uruguayan weather service said.

The higher temperatures, however, are going to be accompanied by heavy rains and strong winds, the weather service said.
