Peru suffers from floods

Since December last year, due to constant flooding in Peru, 110 people have already died, 16,000 houses have been destroyed, 210,000 have been seriously damaged, more than 2500 kilometers of roads and 281 bridges destroyed or damaged.

Meteorologists believe that the cause of the worst rains in recent decades is the change in the El Niño-related climate phenomenon, which is a warm current that provokes an increase in the surface water temperature in the equatorial Pacific.

El Niño influences the direction of the winds and causes torrential rains in South America, which lead to floods and landslides. Most of all, the consequences of the El Niño phenomenon are stronger than other countries in Peru and Ecuador.
