The Rio del Loro River damaged houses, supplies, crops and livestock, leaving more than 1,800 families affected. They are being relocated to temporary shelters. A main road is completely blocked by the overflow of rivers and other debris, preventing the complete passage of vehicles towards the south of the department. Four municipalities that have been affected by the avalanches are: Algeciras, Campolegre, Rivera and Neiva. (M: CARACOL)
