Over 8,000 families have been evacuated from their homes in Asunción after the Paraguay river overflowed.

Paraguay’s National Emergency Secretariat (SEN) in coordination with the local disaster authority, Consejo Municipal de Emergencias y Desastres de Asunción (Comueda), have carried out the evacuations from the low-lying bañados areas of the city, in particular Bañado Norte.

SEN said on Wednesday that, “the number of families affected by the flooding in the capital already exceeded 7,000, after the level of the Paraguay river increased by 113 cm in just 17 days…”

The families are being houses in over 70 temporary shelters. Food kits have been distributed by Comueda, who said yesterday that the number of evacuated families had grown to 8,713 families. According to Comueda, 3,910 of these families have been evacuated from the Bañado Sur area, and 4,803 from Bañado Norte.

As of 30 July 2015, Administración Nacional de Navegación y Puertos (ANNP) report that the Paraguay river stood at 6.13 metres at Asunción, having fallen 2 cm in the last 24 hours. Flood levels is 5.50 metres.

Higher than normal rainfall in the north and east of Paraguay during July caused the significant increase of the Paraguay river levels. According to ECHO, the Paraguay river has also overflowed in the departments of San Pedro and Guaira.

This is the second time in the space of a few weeks that large-scale evacuations have been carried out in the city as a result of flooding or the threat of flooding. In early June 2015, 4,917 families in the low-lying bañados areas of the city were evacuated as a precaution after levels of the Paraguay river rose to 5.45 metres.
