SANTA FE, Argentina (CNN) -- Emergency workers were working Thursday to bring in supplies to thousands forced from their homes after several days of heavy rains and flooding that left seven dead and three missing in this northern Argentinian province.
Authorities said that at least 29,000 people were in 115 official shelters, but they estimated another 90,000 residents had been displaced and were staying with relatives.
The Argentinian government is coordinating with local authorities to bring loads of food, medicine, and mattresses to the area.
Flood waters from the Rio Salado were beginning to recede Thursday under sunny skies.
The Santa Fe Province is an important agricultural region and authorities estimate the flooding will cost farmers at least $200 million.
The town of Santa Fe is about 500 kilometers from the capital city, Buenos Aires.
