Incredible footage shows woman crawl out from raging mudslide

A dozen people in Peru have died in the last three days as a result of unsafe flooding and mudslides that are now threatening the capital.

The storms are being caused by a warming of the surface waters in the Pacific Ocean and are expected to continue for another two weeks, with the disaster affecting more than half the nation. "We do not even have clothes", a woman whose house was buried under rocks and mud told Canal N during a live broadcast.
