Photos Of ‘Mega-Mudslides’ In Bolivia

On Sunday night, a ‘mega mudslides’ hit La Paz, Bolivia after heavy rains brought by La Nina phenomenon.

The mudslides destroyed the houses of at least 4000 people.

The Bolivian president promised that the government will build new houses for the victims.

The poor neighbourhood of Carlapa was badly damaged.

Most of the houses were built on the hills and fell on top of another.

Mudslide is a natural disaster.

I am very sad and sorry for the victims.
