And one lucky resident was recovering after he and his vehicle were dragged almost 230 feet by the raging river.

The unnamed man is a minibus driver who got caught up in the overflowing river while on his route.

Dramatic images that aired on local television showed the river tossing his minibus violently.

Witnesses ran to the vehicle, expecting to find the driver dead, but he reportedly had only a few bruises and bumps.

Meanwhile, other residents waded through ankle-deep water as they tried to remove heavy mud from their homes and belongings.

The local government said that emergency crews were deployed to assist affected residents.


The ruling government had the most revenues ever in our history and total control of ALL State powers over the last eleven years … nothing had been done to mitigate, prevent these type of events, just demagogue, cheap socialist bonuses and a waste of over $180 billion dollars.
