South American country Chile witnessed one of the worst floods caused by torrential rains, in which at least two people died and 24 went missing on Wednesday, 25 March.
The torrential rains lashed the country on Tuesday on the normally dry Copiapó and Atacama desert regions, leaving more than 700 people homeless.
A 34-year-old man and a 45-year-old woman were reportedly killed in the floods. While one was electrocuted on the street, another one died in a mudslide.
Meanwhile, the government of Chile has declared a state of emergency in the Atacama desert region.
"Anyone in an at-risk zone in the Atacama region should evacuate," said Interior Minister Rodrigo Penailillo, according to BBC News.
