Chilean and Peruvian officials are worrying about the recent heavy rainfall that is causing landmines to travel to more populated areas as they are being swept away by the water and mud caused by flooding rivers.
As a precaution, the border of the two Latin American countries has been closed as landmines have been washing up on the roads.
In Chile, four mines have already been purposefully detonated by a highway that links it with Peru. That highway is heavily traveled as it is the used for trade between the two countries.
It has been predicted that Peru may experience one of the wettest summers in its history.
