Houses are seen flooded in Bohorquez, on the outskirts of Barranquilla, northwestern Colombia, on Dec. 15, 2010. The worst rainfall in Colombia in over 50 years caused at least 257 dead and 75 missing. Record-breaking deluges have influenced nearly 2 million people among 28 provinces in the country, damaged 650,000 hectares of crops and blocked 678 highways with landslides.
