A major landslide within the Andean city of La Paz was the latest in a series of crises brought about by heavy rain in the nation of Bolivia.

Late last week, a slow-moving landslide caused chaos in one La Paz neighborhood. The slide, said to be triggered by high rainfall, had reportedly wrecked at least 400 homes. Fortunately, there were no reported casualties.

At least 100,000 people were left without running water, reports showed.
