    Floods in Uruguay have 10.000 people displaced and losses are estimated in a billion dollars

    The latest report indicates that 10.097 people have been forced to abandon their homes:  2.656 had to be evacuated while 7.699 did it on their own means

    Uruguay's emergency committee reported on Thursday another death and over 10.000 people displaced because of widespread floods that followed a tornado and several days pouring rain. The ninth victim is a farmhand who fell off his horse while trying to cross an overflowed canal. A few hours before the body of a missing farmer was found kilometers down a river that sucked him while he was trying to save cattle.
