Flooding in Argentina

Heavy rains caused a massive flood in the Argentine provinces of Buenos Aires and La Pampa over the weekend.

Flooded were about 10 million hectares of agricultural land. Flooding threatens both the harvest of already planted wheat, and causes damage to fodder crops. According to experts, next year at least 1.2 million hectares of agricultural land will be unsuitable, which will lead to a loss of $ 1.1 billion.

In addition to agricultural lands flooded roads. The city of Rankul, located in the province of La Pampa, was completely cut off from the outside world, due to flooded transport routes.
