It rained here consistently for about a week. My host mom said that this is really strange because February is usually very sunny and perfect for Carnaval, but so far, it's been rainy.
The rain has caused a ton of problems here. As far as I know, three towns have been flooded, many people have died, and many homes and a school has been destroyed. This has happened in rural villages and in the mountains near Santiago.
Santiago hasn't suffered great damage and the rain ceased yesterday. Today is nice and sunny and I hope it remains.
