Fatal Floods Swamp Ecuador, Colombia This is the Ecuador/Colombia border region, inundated by flood water after torrential rain caused two rivers to burst their banks. The torrents have left three Colombians and one Ecuadorian dead, and damaged over 1000 homes. (SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) ALCELMO GALINDO, RESIDENT OF THE FLOODED AREA: "What can you do?
