Due to heavy rains, floods destroyed many towns of Bolivia and swabbed bridges and highways.
The Beni River in eastern Bolivia spilled over its banks and into the tourist town. Locals in the town walked through water in the streets and it was the most severe flooding the area had seen in 20 years. Rains also punished localities in the highland province of La Paz, where hanging bridges were left dangling and travel between villages was difficult. The main highway was washed out, as were several smaller dirt roads.
