Destruction and havoc are two dangerous simulations that can change the demographic structure of one’s belongingness and growth.

Peru is facing the worst rainfall ever and this rainfall is creating a flood situation in the country too. As per the sources, the intense rains, edging rivers, mudslides and flooding being experienced in the country are the worst seen in two decades. Peruvian authorities have said that this flood is affecting more than half the nation as the death toll since the beginning of the year hit 72.

The highly unusual rains follow a series of storms that have struck hard along Peru's northern coast, with voracious waters submerging hospitals and leaving some small villages isolated.

The storms are being caused by a warming of the surface waters of the Pacific Ocean and are expected to continue for another two weeks, with the disaster affecting more than half the nation.

Prime Minister ‘Fernando Zavala’ said that emergency has been declared in half of Peru, including over 800 towns, to expedite resources to the hardest hit areas, mostly in the north where rainfall has broken records in several districts.

The country's capital Lima has been without water since Monday and the assistance in the region are only now being restored. The armed forces have been deployed in the affected areas to help the police control law and order across the country.

We hope that this havoc situation gets over for all the Peruvian and everything gets refurbished to normal as soon as possible.
