• Flooding sparks evacuation of thousands in Argentina


    BUENOS AIRES: Flooding across much of Argentina that burst riverbanks and deluged city streets killed three people and led more than 11,000 to evacuate their homes, authorities said Tuesday. The national weather service said more rain was in the forecast but not as heavy as in recent days, which have seen record downfall in very short periods of time. The downpours have burst banks in major rivers such as the Lujan, the Areco and the Arrecifes. Many parts of the fertile pampas region — where the country’s key crops are grown and livestock is raised — were under water.
