Nearly 5,000 hectares of bananas for export were affected by the overflow of the Sabala and Isarzama rivers in Puerto Villarroel.
The water flooded the facilities of the Expoban packinghouse, causing the loss of 10,000 boxes of products that were ready to be exported to Argentina and Uruguay, reported Radio Fides.
It is estimated that the economic losses are around 50 thousand dollars. The overflow of the rivers in this region also affected the Morales power plant, 1 de Mayo, Nueva Vida, and Nueva Luna, which have been isolated since yesterday.
According to the report of the National Service of Hydrology and Meteorology (Senamhi) there might be more floods that could affect the populations of Puerto Villarroel, Puerto Grethel, Entre Rios, Bulo Bulo, Villa Tunari, Sinahota, Santa Rosa del Chapare, and Chimore among others, until January 11.
