Bolivia flood NEW ZetaTalk:
This is map of January!!!! Not Feb!!
Lakes in the high Andes drain into the Amazon basin, if they drain at all. The area in Bolivia experiencing the worst flooding normally is drained by two different rivers, but what happens when mountain building occurs in the Andes, and pressure from the crimp creates crumpling in the Andes. The top portion of S America is free to pull to the west, overriding the Caribbean Plate and the Cocos Plate just to the west. But the bottom portion of S America is blocked by the Nazca Plate, which resists. Crumpling in the crimp creates folds, which are points on the crust which drop and heave, alternately.
This is similar to the accordion fold that occurred on the Sunda Plate, wherein the rivers in northern Thailand heaved, blocking the river beds, and then at a later date relaxed, releasing the flood through Bangkok. . Flooding is likewise occurring along the coast of southern Brazil, due to a stretch there that drops the land when S America bows. The crimp in S America is opposite from the yaw point at Nigeria, where sudden flooding and imploding buildings are occurring because the top part of Africa is held in place at present while the bottom part is pulling toward the east, falling into the void of the Indian Ocean.
