Argentine Capital Flooded


February 20, 2010 — After two days of heavy rain, the evening commute in Buenos Aires on Friday was next to impossible.

It's an unusual sight...flooding in Buenos Aires.

It was the second day of really heavy rain in the Argentine capital yesterday and it made for a very difficult ride home.

Crossing an intersection is nothing out of the ordinary, but on Friday it was a feat.

Police were forced to use canoes and rafts to try and help residents get through intersections. Meanwhile, pedestrians were guided through thigh-high water.

Electricity was cut in several areas of the city due to safety concerns.

And it doesn't look like the region is in the clear just yet.

Forecasters say, more heavy rains will continue through until Saturday at least.
