"Six municipalities under water and 20,000 affected in the province," Argentine daily Clarinwrites on the front page of its Wednesday edition, alongside a picture of people forced to canoe their way around the city of Salto, after heavy weekend rains caused severe floods in the Buenos Aires area.
The cities of Salto, Lujan, La Matanza, Lobos, Areco and Arrecifes were the worst hit by the torrential rains. Three people were killed in the floods, and more than 11,000 from 39 municipalities in the Buenos Aires province had to be evacuated.
