On the outskirts of Lima, hundreds of householders salvage scant belongings in what is left of their homes after the Rimac River burst its banks in recent weeks amid PeruÕs worst flooding disaster in decades. Many of the hardest hit are those who can least afford it - poor Peruvians who built their homes on cheap land near the river. Across Peru, dozens have been killed and tens of thousands displaced after sudden warming of Pacific waters off the coast unleashed torrential downpours in recent weeks, part of a localized El Nino phenomenon that is forecast to stretch into April.
