今年一月初的豪雨造成接連洪水不斷,嚴重淹沒了玻利維亞數個區域逾25萬人的家園。相鄰的巴西和厄瓜多成千個家庭同樣遭洪水沖的流離失所。本周雨水已有趨緩之勢,然而雨季特報尚未解除,未來仍有大雨發生的機會,屆時恐怕再次引發格蘭德河暴漲氾濫,釀成更多的悲劇。

Flooding Imperils Thousands in Bolivia, Brazil, Ecuador
LA PAZ, Bolivia, March 1, 2006 (ENS)
Continuous floods led by heavy rains since early January have affected more than 250,000 people in several departments across Bolivia. Thousands of families in Brazil and Ecuador have also been displaced. Rains have lessened this week, but the rain season is not over yet. More rains are forecast, which may cause the Rio Grande to overflow again, creating new floods.
