The rains, brought on by El Niño, are expected to continue for another two weeks, authorities said on Thursday.

More than 60 people have been killed in Peru in flooding caused by heavy seasonal rains. The city, where it nearly never rains, is home to 10 million people.

Stunned witnesses in Peru took out their cellphone cameras as a woman escaped a mudslide that swept her into a swamp of debris, trash, and farm animals. All the schools have suspended classes.

The woman, who was identified in media reports as Evangelina Chamorro Diaz, pulled herself out from under fallen debris and walked - completely covered in mud - over the fallen wooden panels. They were feeding their pigs when the landslide seized control of them. They held on to each other's hands but Chamorro eventually lost his grip and got separated.

"She is a little confused, but she is very well and will recover because she is a warrior and thank God nothing serious happened", health minister Patricia Garcia said after visiting Díaz on Thursday, CNN reported.

"There's a person there!" an observer cried out.

Severe flooding in Peru caused by unusual rainfall has left many people homeless and claimed several lives. The woman was carried to an ambulance and sustained minor injuries.

In Lima, the swelling Huaycoloro river swept away two trucks and threatened to destroy a bridge. He urged them to avoid flooded roads and weak bridges.

We want to hear from you.
