On 3 April 2012 the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) reported on how the heavy rains have impacted food security  along the coast and in the Andes region of Ecuador.  According to Ecuador's National Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology the rain has been some of heaviest recorded in the past 30 years.  Humanitarian aid and food are being sent by the WFP to the provincial capital of Carchi, Tulcan, where people have lost their homes due to heavy flooding along the Chana (Tajamar) River.
