Torrential Rainfall in Bolivia Crashes Bridge to the Ground.

The city of La Paz issued an orange alert as heavy rainfall caused rivers to overflow, destroying a bridge on Friday.

In the southern part of the Bolivian capítal, the Huaynajawira river destroyed a perimeter wall overflowing into a highway and the Aruntaya river current smashed into a bridge, bringing it down to rubble.

The annual rainy season in Bolivia begins in November and runs until March.
