Strong wind storms leave 14 dead in Argentina
April 7, 2012
– At least 14 people died in Argentina following storms that saw strong winds cause damage across the capital region. “Seven people died — six were crushed and one was electrocuted,” near Buenos Aires, local emergency coordinator Luciano Timerman told reporters. Police also said three other people died in a neighborhood to the south of Buenos Aires when an illegally built home collapsed. In the capital, a man died when the walls of his home collapsed, authorities also said in an initial report. They later reported the death of another man crushed by the wall of a gas station abandoned in Florencio Varela to the south of Buenos Aires. A woman was killed after another wall fell on her. In central-eastern Santa Fe province, a high tension cable snapped by the high winds killed a man, Timerman said. Strong winds blew down four ramps of spotlights at the Nueva Chicago football club in the capital, while the San Lorenzo and Huracan clubs also suffered heavy damage, their directors said. The sheet metal roofs of many homes were blown away, while the winds broke building windows, in addition to other damage reported by witnesses and local media. The Buenos Aires parks and recreation chief said 114 trees had collapsed, destroying many vehicles and blocking roads, while parts of the capital and the suburbs were in the dark after the power was cut. –Terra Daily

Moderate quake shakes Argentina
2 June 2012
A moderate earthquake measuring 5.8 shook northern Argentina on Saturday, US researchers reported. There were no immediate reports of casualties or damage.
The epicenter of the tremor, which occurred at 4:52 am (0752 GMT), was located sparsely-populated region 129 kilometers (80 miles) east from the Bolivian city of Tarija and 314 kilometers west from the Paraguayan town of Mariscal Estigarribia, according to the US Geological Survey.
The depth of the epicenter was 529 kilometers.
The reading was based on the open-ended Moment Magnitude scale used by US seismologists, which measures the area of the fault that ruptured and the total energy released.

Argentina Swelters Amid Heat Wave, Power Outages
06 Jan 2013
BUENOS AIRES – A blistering heat wave, power outages and a fuel shortage added up to a second day of hellish conditions in Greater Buenos Aires, home to about a quarter of Argentina’s 40 million people.
Amid a plethora of recommendations by the authorities on how to deal with the soaring temperatures, which on Tuesday were expected to reach 36 C (97 F), people took refuge in any shade they could find to get out of the blazing heat of the Argentine summer.
High alert for the Argentine capital and its surrounding areas due to the high temperatures, which created scenes the total opposite of those seen these days in snowbound Europe and the United States.

The weather service warned
“The city of Buenos Aires (with its 2.8 million inhabitants) has a summer average of 90 deaths per day but, for example, during the heat wave at the beginning of 2001 it went up to 250 deaths in a single day.  Given that high temperatures will continue throughout the week, we ask the population to avoid as much as possible exposing themselves to sun rays and to drink a lot of water,” Argentine Health Minister Juan Manzur said, urging people to seek medical attention if they develop such symptoms as high fever, drowsiness, fainting or a racing pulse.

Added to the suffocating heat, the climatic phenomenon La Nińa has spread drought across vast areas of the Buenos Aires and La Pampa provinces, the richest agricultural region of a country that is one of the world’s top grain exporters.

The heat wave also set a “historic record” in consumption of electricity, according to the public utilities involved, to the point that in numerous Buenos Aires neighborhoods and urban districts there were power outages in the last few days that sparked bitter protests.
The Association for the Defense of User and Consumer Rights warned that 40 percent of the customers of Edenor, Edesur and Edelap, the distributors of electric energy in Greater Buenos Aires, suffered blackouts or diminished power.
But the utilities said there were only a few isolated cases of power outages in an area of some 600 square kilometers (230 square miles).

Automobile traffic also appeared threatened by the fuel shortage, reflected in long lines of cars at the gasoline pumps.
“There’s no gas anywhere. If I don’t fill up now I can’t work today,” a taxi driver lamented on a local radio station, saying that he was out “hunting” for gasoline.
The fuel shortage is due to the increased demand of consumers traveling to other parts of the country to spend the year-end holidays and summer vacations, as well as the ordinary delays in distribution due to the Christmas festivities. EFE

Argentina and Uruguay Storm, South America
Sept 19, 2012
A fierce storm packing 140-kilometer (87-mile) an hour winds tore across the heart of South America on Wednesday, killing five people in Paraguay and wreaking havoc in Argentina and Uruguay.
The Roque Alonso suburb of the Paraguayan capital Asuncion was devastated by the storm and widespread looting was reported in its aftermath.

Four police cadets died and 15 were injured when the roof of their dormitory collapsed, and a 16-year-old boy died at a shopping center when a water tank collapsed on him outside a pharmacy.
Nationwide, at least 5,000 homes were destroyed and more than 80 people injured in storm-related incidents, Aldo Saldivar of the national emergency response center said.
The wind was less severe further south in Argentina and Uruguay, around 100 kilometers (62 mph) per hour, but strong gusts still ripped of roofs and toppled trees and power lines, plunging some regions into darkness.
