More than 150,000 people in Paraguay, Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil have been driven from their homes by some of the worst flooding in years.
 
Heavy summer rains have caused rivers to swell across a vast area.
 
In Paraguay, the most affected country, President Horacio Cartes declared a state of emergency, freeing up 3.5 million dollars in relief funds.
 
The Paraguay River in the capital, Asuncion, is just 30 cm away from overtopping its banks.
 
That could lead to widespread flooding in the Asuncion area.
