  • According to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), as of 13 May, almost 1,000 people have been evacuated (while many others had to self-evacuate to the homes of relatives and relatives) and 2,400 affected in eight departments of the provinces of Corrientes and Entre Ríos.
