Clarin, Aug. 12, 2015

"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.
