Heavy rains trigger flooding in Venezuela

Three cities in the Venezuelan state of Zulia have been transformed into a kind of Italian Venice after the flooding caused by torrential rains.

Shops, businesses, homes and even medical centers were flooded in Cabimas, Simone Bolivar and Ciudad Ojeda.

Patients at the Pedro García Clara Hospital in Ciudad Ojeda received hemodialysis in wards filled with water.

The disaster also led to power outages, and in Simone Bolivar, flooding even affected a local oil field, leading to an oil spill.
