Flooding in Puno, drought in Lima

Lake Titicaca waters rise, Peru fears floods: "Officials warn the rainy season has only just begun yet the water level is already only 17 inches (44 cm) below a 'critical level' of 12,503 feet (3,811 metres) above sea level. Two of the main rivers feeding the lake have already burst their banks, damaging 500 homes and 12,350 acres (5,000 hectares) of farm land, and killing about 15 percent of livestock in the area, according to official estimates." Reuters AlertNet Peru's weather seems to balance out by going to extremes.
