3 ARGENTINA Drought and ash effects in the province of Chubut A prolonged drought and Puyehue volcano ash effects have caused a severe impact in several municipalities of the Patagonian province of Chubut. In the municipality of Mártires in the communities of Las Plumas and El Mirasol, due to the prolonged drought and the impact of the Puyehue Volcano ash (last year) fall resulting in the dead of sheep, a third of its population has left the region. The population of 650 inhabitants struggles to survive as their economy deteriorates in a daily basis. Families and youngsters have fled because of unemployment, lack of rains and ashes that ruined their economy. This is the only spot in Argentina that has rapidly loss its population in the last ten years. According to the last census, 20.4% of the population in the Municipality of Mártires has fled to the cities. Most of the remaining population is elderly. Sheep breeding and wool production was the main source of income of farmers in this region. Almost the totality of the animals has died and farmers have lost their only source of income; plagues such as pumas and wild pigs have also affected sheep breeding as they eat the sheep. The agricultural sector is completely devastated. Public premises give life to the municipality, the municipal office, the police station and a school. Also, there are four bars, three shops, three mechanics, three clothing shops, an ice cream shop, a hotel, a bakery and a bus station. But such small businesses have felt the impact of the crisis as there is barely consumption. Nothing to report. BOLIVIA Heavy rains Since early December, heavy rains, floods, rivers overflowing, landslides and hailstorms have caused damages in different regions of the country. Most affected departments are La Paz, Santa Cruz, Chuquisaca, Tarija, Potosí, and Beni; where at least 1,362 families have been affected and 8 persons have died. At least 100 houses have been severely damaged and hundreds of several hectares of crops completely destroyed. Assessments to quantify losses and identify needs are being undertaken. The National Contingency Plan has been activated and resources have been allocated for providing humanitarian assistance and post disaster recovery. A total of 19.5 million of Bolivianos (2.1 m EUR) have been allocated so far. The contingency plan establishes recommendations for prevention and preparedness to municipalities regarding organization and assistance to affected population. According to weather forecasts, rains and electric storms are expected in the next days in the Altiplano, the Chaco region and the Amazon region. Six municipalities in the department of La Paz have been affected by rain, hail, overflowing of streams and flooding. Only in this department approximately 320 families are affected, and 70 hectares of crops have been damaged. Authorities issued a departmental yellow alert to purchase and distribute food and water to affected zones and rehabilitate crops. 3/6

4 ECHO is closely following the situation with its partners. CHILE Copahue Volcano eruption process On 22 December Copahue volcano located in the region of Bío Bío in the border with Argentina, registered a considerable increase in its activity.

Affected communities by ash fall are Rio Verde, Juive, Baños, El Manzano, Runtún, Pondoa, Choglontus, Cahuaji, Palitahua, El Altar, Puela, La Matriz, El Rosario, Santa Fe de Galán, San José de Chazo, Guanando, and Ilapo. The agricultural sector is the most affected. The Risk Management Secretariat declared orange alert the provinces of Tungurahua and Cotopaxi. In the city of Baños (Tungurahua), as prevention measure schools activities were suspended and contingency plans have been activated.

Nothing to report 4/6

5 PERU Heavy rains and landslides Since early December heavy rains and landslides (huaycos) have affected the central selva region, mainly the departments of San Martín, Huancavelica, Junín and the Valley of rivers Apurímac Ene Mantaro (Vraem).
