One of the worst catastrophes that has hit Bolivia in this last decade, since deaths are now around 50 people. The soy and other crops have been lost in huge amounts, soy alone is estimated to have lost 40% of its crop, there is an estimation of around 500 milllion in damages to crops, roads and others.
Peru, Argentina, Venezuela, Brazil and the USA have sent supplies and helped with helicopters and staff to help in this calamity.
The forecasts do not help in what seems to be coming for the country, more rain for all the month of February in huge amounts seems to only worsen the possible future scenario for Bolivia. Most damage has happened in the rural areas but the coming rains will probably still have a story to tell.
Airlines have been providing specially cheap plane tickets for people trying to go from one part of the country to the other, specially from east to west and vice-versa. Even though some roads have already been opened to traffic again, rain continues and things don't seem to find a near solution.
A short shot of the Rocha River today, running with water (quite an unusual sight considering it is usually dry).
