(ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION) In the Peruvian capital of Lima, residents lined up for drinking water on Sunday (March 19) after clogged water treatment systems caused restrictions on running water, and as the country continued to battle torrential downpours that killed at least 75 people and left over 100,000 homeless. A sudden and abnormal warming of Pacific waters off Peru has unleashed the deadliest downpours in decades, with landslides and raging rivers sweeping away people, clogging highways and destroying crops. Classes have been suspended in Lima and, with some areas without running water for three days, supermarkets are starting to report a shortage of bottled water. In Trujillo, 500 km (311 miles) north of the capital, at least four people were missing when the vehicles they were traveling in plunged into the swollen Viru River after the 120 metre-long Viru bridge crossing that river collapsed. The rainy season has delivered 10 times more rainfall than usual and authorities have declared half the country in emergency to expedite resources to the hardest hit areas.
