One dead, over 11,000 homeless after storm hits south-central Chile

Santiago, June 18 (UNI) An ongoing storm lashing south-central Chile has to date left one person dead and 11,126 people homeless after damaging more than 8,900 homes, authorities said.
The frontal system hit the southern part of the Biobio region on Monday with heavy rain and is expected to drench other parts, including the capital Santiago, as it moves northward, said Alicia Cebrian, deputy director of the National Disaster Prevention and Response Service, at a press conference.
"We expect that during the night it might rain in the (central) Metropolitan region and it will continue to head north until it reaches the southern part of the (northern) Coquimbo region," Cebrian said.
