    Thousands of people have been left homeless after the deadliest rains in decades have caused floods and destruction in Peru's coast.

    At least 70 people have been killed, roads and bridges destroyed and crops lost.

    The government says more than half of the country is in a state of emergency.

    Weather forecasts indicate there will be rain for another month as the worst downpours in decades continue to leave the country at a standstill.

    Al Jazeera's Mariana Sanchez reports from Huachipa.
