Colombia Mocoa river overflow – CWEB.com

Images from southern Colombia where three converging rivers overflowed their banks, killing at least 150, many more ‘missing’.

An avalanche of water from three overflowing rivers tore through a small city in Colombia while people slept over the weekend, destroying homes, sweeping away cars and killing at least 193 unsuspecting residents.

The incident triggered by a sudden, heavy rainstorm happened around midnight in Mocoa, a provincial capital of about 40,000 tucked between mountains near Colombia’s southern border with Ecuador.
