ERE, flooding affect tens of thousands in Venezuela

Venezuelan President Maduro has declared a state of emergency in the municipality of Paez, Apure state, after extreme rain events (ERE) triggered severe flooding, said a report.

The floods in Paez have been described “as the worst to hit the area in over two decades.” More than two weeks of torrential rains have caused two major rivers to burst their banks inundating large areas, and affecting more than 40,000 people.

In 2010, floods affected more than 1.5 million Venezuelans across three states and the capital, Caracas, killing dozens of people and destroying thousands of homes and businesses.
