DetailsDate Submitted: February 9, 2017 Country: Peru
Our city sustained nearly 5 hours of rain last night, we went to bed praying for families living in adobe homes that make up most of the houses in the outskirts of our city. More copious precipitation all over the country has already flooded cities and destroyed many homes and highways. Forecasters predict more floods and more landslides throughout our summer season (Dec.-March).
February 7th Update: Many parts of our country, as close as just 3 hours north of us, are suffering the effects of heavier than normal rainfall. We keep watching the weather reports and remain prepared, just in case. Your prayers are much appreciated.
