(REUTERS) - Amateur video caught the dramatic moment a home in Chile collapsed and was swept away in flood water after a torrential rain storm in the country's southern Los Lagos region.

At least four homes were completely destroyed or carried away by rushing flood water in the city of Hualaihue.

Several other homes in the city of just over 8,000 inhabitants were also damaged by the storm and the overflowing Queche River.

Chile's weather service has forecast more rain and heavy winds in the area with another front moving into the area.

Damage was also reported in other nearby communities. More than a hundred people were forced to evacuate their homes as a result of the stormy weather.
