Chile:

Flooding in San Pedro de Atacama “the worst in 11 years”


SAN PEDRO DE ATACAMA – The hills of Region II have experienced the worst invierno boliviano that it has seen in over a decade, according to the director of Onemi in that region, Irina Salgado. The term invierno boliviano refers to a short period between northern Chile’s wet and dry season that typically brings heavy rainfall, strong winds and sometimes flash flooding.

This year has been particularly bad, as over 40 millimeters of rain fell on the small town of San Pedro de Atacama in the last few days. Twelve houses have already been destroyed and another 8 were badly damaged. In total, over 800 people have been affected by the horrible weather.

In the early morning hours on Sunday, an intense storm caused the Toconao river to flood, washing away houses and destroying the little farmland that exists in the area.

“One hundred percent of the agriculture in the area is gone,” explained Sandra Bruna, the mayor of San Pedro de Atacama. “This has never happened before. Since I became mayor I have never witnessed anything like what is happening here.”

Toconao was hit the hardest by the storm, but other areas have also been effected including San Pedro, como Peine, Río Bueno and Talabre. Many streets have been cut off, such as the one that leads to Termas de Puritama. This road continues to the Tatio Geysers, which is one of the most popular tourist destinations in northern Chile.

The Ministry of the Interior made the decision to send the ministers of the Economy, Pablo Longueira; Public Works, Laurence Golborne; and Social Development, Joaquín Lavín, to the area.

The ministers formed an emergency committee, that would be responsible for planning the first aid programs to the areas in the worst condition. Minister Golborne declared that the committee’s first job would be “to solve the most urgent problems, for example, accessibility to the zones that are cut off and their water supply, the rebuilding of homes for the victims, and tourism, that we can see has been badly damaged.”

He mentioned, however, that the reconstruction could take months.

“The situation is very complicated,” said Minister Lavín. “The river is flowing four times higher than usual and there is three times as much rain as usual. The main concern is the small villages in the interior of San Pedro. He also assured the 20 families who lost their homes that they would receive “emergency housing” as soon as possible.
