An abnormally strong storm system brought rounds of heavy rain and severe weather to parts of central and northern Argentina Sunday into Monday with some heavy rainfall continuing Tuesday.
At least three people have been killed by the severe weather across Argentina, according to Aljazeera. Nearly 3,000 people have been forced to evacuate their homes due to the recent storms.
This same storm system brought more than 50 mm (2 inches) in less than 6 hours to the Buenos Aires area, leading to flash flooding.
Rosario, to the northwest of Buenos Aires, was blasted by severe thunderstorms that brought wind gusts around 100 kph (60 mph) along with hail and heavy rainfall.
Farther to the southwest, Neuquen received record setting rainfall as the storm brought days of rain to the area.
Rainfall totaled more than 250 mm (10 inches) at Neuguen airport since the start of April, more than than they normally receive in an entire year. Yearly rainfall averages just over 175 mm (7 inches).
Some of the most fertile crop lands in Argentina got the heaviest rainfall from this storm which could delay harvesting of crops that are still in the fields.
