Floods and Mudslides in Peru Results in Death, Injuries and Destruction

Yet another period of heavy rain has caused major flooding and landslides in several areas of Peru over the last few days.

Floods and mudslides have affected parts of Lima Region, including the capital, where several rivers have overflowed.

Other parts of the country have also been affected, including the regions of Piura, La Libertad, Lambayeque and Callao.

Three people were buried by a rock slide (video 1) in the town of Viracochán in the province of Huanta, Ayacucho. They were travelling in a van for the beginning of the school year in the valley of the Apurimac.

A woman can be seen dragged along with the debries flood together with her pet. (video 8) She managed to rescue herself.

Sadly the recent flooding is nothing new for many communities. The country has been experiencing periods of heavy rainfall since December 2016 and over 60 people have died as a result of flooding and landslides since then.

Local observers are calling the unusual climatic conditions “El Niño Costero” and are blaming the heavy rainfall on higher temperatures of the eastern Pacific Ocean waters.

Further rainfall is forecast and authorities are bracing themselves for two more weeks of heavy rain, potential flooding and landslides.

Floods in Lima Region

Around 10,000 people have been affected by the current flood event in Lima Region.

On Tuesday 14 March, the rivers Rimac, Huaycoloro and Huaicos all overflowed in different points of the capital affecting Chaclacayo, Lurigancho-Chosica, El Augistino and Punta Hermosa.

A bridge dramatically collapsed in Talavera, San Juan de Lurigancho, Lima Province. (Vid 2).

Elsewhere in in Lima region the Supe river overflowed, inundating nearby areas in Ambar District. Authorities report that Mala, Chilca and Cañete have also been affected by flooding.

Great set of vids , really shows the power of Mother Nature.

That 1st vid looked like the body parts sticking out of that vehicle were eroded away.

Woman & 2 Cows Survive Mudslide

Land and mud slides have killed several dozen people in Peru over the past few days as the rainy season begins.

This video shows how one woman, and two cows, somehow managed to escape the deadly torrent of wood and debris blasting down river past them.

See if you can spot the cow that did not survive.

Punta Hersosa, Peru, March 19, 2017.
