Argentine in 'state of emergency' over floods

Severe flooding, sparked by torrential rains, has wreaked havoc in the Buenos Aires province.

    A state of emergency has been declared in the Buenos Aires province due to severe flooding sparked by torrential rains that damaged homes and toppled trees.

    In the badly-hit city of Lujan, which is near the country's capital, some people could be seen floating through city streets in small boats while others waded through the floodwaters.

    Authorities said close to 1,000 people had been evacuated, while water levels in the Lujan river continued to rise.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Schweimler reports from Lujan.
