Flooding affected the cantons of Limón Indanza, Tiwintza and Logroño from 16 May when heavy rain caused several rivers to overflow, including the Kiim, Yaupi and Morona rivers.

Ecuador’s National Risk Management Service SNGRE said two young people were swept away by flood water from the rapidly rising Yaupi River in Twintza.
