Description of the event

Heavy rains caused severe flooding in Uruguays' Salto Department, Paysandú Department and Bella Unión city of the Artigas department displacing 3500 people.

Uruguay's National Emergency System (SINAE) are visiting affected areas to assess the damage and prepare relief efforts. Many of the displaced people are already receiving food, shelter and medical care.

Northern parts of Uruguay have been under a heavy rain warning since 24 May, and authorities expect further rain with flood waters set to continue rising.
