H11 peru flooding

In Peru, the death toll from the country’s worst flooding in more than 30 years is rising. At least 90 people have now died. The flooding caused by torrential downpours linked to climate change has also destroyed tens of thousands of houses and displaced more than 100,000 people. The floods have also destroyed thousands of roads, bridges and highways across Peru, paralyzing commerce and making it harder to transport aid to affected regions.
