Peru: Floods batter central mountainous regions

Flash floods destroyed sections of the nation’s central highway in the province of Ambo, central Peru, on Saturday, dragging under a heavy cargo truck and threatening to claim a second, as seen on Sunday. Due to heavy rains, the Huallaga River burst its banks this morning causing several landslides. The intense rainfall looks set to continue, further endangering surrounding populations who are...
