This is an “environmental catastrophe” brought on by the lowest temperatures registered in Santa Cruz in nearly half a century, Gov. Ruben Costas told reporters.

11 Feb 14 -Authorities in the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz declared an alert following the deaths of  6 million fish from the unusually cold weather gripping the country in recent weeks.
The provincial government said the fish died in the Grande, Pirai and Ichilo rivers that run through the tropical region.
Temperatures in southern and eastern Bolivia dropped severely, even falling below 0 C (32 F) in areas where the thermometer is usually above 20 C (68 F).
Bolivia’s weather service warns that a new cold front will enter the southern and eastern parts of the country this week.
