Heavy floods in Bolivia - level 2
In October, heavy seasonal rain began in Bolivia and flooding started. The flooding has affected 17,000 families and it has killed 25 people.
The centre and north of Bolivia received the most flooding so far. The northern province of Pando is near Brazil. After the Acre River burst onto land, it destroyed the land around 9000 homes and killed several people.
The government is helping by sending food, beds, mosquito nets, cleaning supplies and tents. People live in the tents in schools, but the schools are almost full.
Difficult words: seasonal (happening during a certain time of the year), burst (to come out strongly), mosquito net (a material to keep out small insects such as mosquitoes).
