BUENOS AIRES — Thousands of Argentines have fled their homes as rivers swollen by torrential rains swept through several northern provinces, the state news agency Telam reported Friday.

Civil defense officials in Chaco, Corrientes, Entre Rios, Formosa and Santa Fe told Telam that more than 40,000 people had to be evacuated after the Pilcomayo, Paraguay and Parana rivers rose after heavy downpours in Paraguay.
