Peru has experienced the worst downpours in decades, with floods and landslides killing at least 78 people and making around 70,000 homeless. The government has declared a state of emergency.
The vast majority of people affected by the extreme weather are poor, including many who built makeshift homes on floodplains that had been dry for 20 years.
Television footage showed people up to their waists in water and cars being swept away. Last week, a three-story hotel collapsed into a river in the Huancavelica region.
