Over 70 people have been killed and over 100,000 left homeless after a series of torrential downpours caused havoc along Peru’s Pacific coast.

The report also indicated that 20 people remain missing and another 100,000 people have been impacted directly by the flooding.

While the heaviest rain has not fallen in the capital of Lima, impacts from swollen rivers in the area have caused flooding and travel disruption around the city, according to Reuters.

The flooding has also impacted the water supply in the city after treatment systems became clogged.
