BOGOTA, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- A swollen river has left more than 20,000 people homeless in Colombia's northern province of Magdalena, officials said on Sunday.

No flood-related death was registered yet, despite the record-high water level of the Magdalena river, the longest river in Colombia, said Omar Diaz, governor of the Magdalena province.
Those rendered homeless were sent to schools and store houses where they received food, hammocks, awnings and plastic sheets and the army is on patrol to prevent possible looting of abandoned homes.
The second raining season in Colombia this year has left at least 60 people dead and half a million homeless across the country, officials said.
