    State of emergency in north of Chile because of torrential rain and floods

    “Some people lost all their belongings, others have been left in very complex situations,” the president said in the city of Tocopilla.

    A state of emergency has been declared by the Chilean government in the northern cities of Antofagasta and Tocopilla due to the strong winds, heavy rains, flashfloods and mudslides. President Michelle Bachelet visited the north on Monday to observe first-hand the damage caused by a storm that left six people dead nationwide.
