#BreakingNews over 250 Killed and over 200 missing during Severe Flooding in Colombia - Please PRAY

More than 250 people were killed in Colombia flooding and 200 are missing, 400 injured after avalanche of mud and water sweeps through city of Mocoa
 Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos visiting a flooded area after heavy rains caused several rivers to overflow in Mocoa, killing more than 250 people.  Waves of water from three overflowing rivers swept through a small city in Colombia while people slept, destroying homes and killing over 200 residents. The incident was stimulated by intense rains in Mocoa, a provincial capital near Colombia's southern border with Ecuador. Muddy water and debris quickly swept through the city's streets, destroying homes, ripping trees, lifting cars and trucks and carrying them downstream. Many of people did not have enough time to climb on top of their roofs or find refuge. According to the Red Cross, 400 people were injured and 220 believed missing. President Juan Manuel Santos declared a state of emergency and said the death toll will likely rise . The Red Cross set up a special unit in Mocoa Saturday afternoon.
