Torrential Rains in La Paz, Bolivia, Kill at Least One Person, Destroy Homes

HeadlineMar 14, 2024

In Bolivia, nonstop rain in the capital La Paz prompted authorities to declare a state of emergency earlier this week as overflowing rivers destroyed homes and killed at least one person. Nearly 50 people have been killed due to flooding since the rainy season in Bolivia started in January. This is an official from La Paz.

Juan Pablo Palma: “In nearly 80 years, we haven’t seen such an event with these characteristics. And in this period, we have had two close to each other. Another unusual event was nine days of continuing rain. There wasn’t any minute during these nine days that the city wasn’t rainy.”
