The rising level of the Cauca river, in the north-eastern province of Antoquia, has forced at least 600 people to leave their homes on Sunday, as the hydroelectric plant Ituango created a situation of emergency, reported Medellin’s Public Companies or EPM.

According to the latest reports, coming from the Unified Command Post in Hidroituango, 19 houses, 2 educational rooms and a health center have been totally destroyed and pedestrian bridges such as those in Puerto Valdivia were also destroyed by the current.
