LA PLATA, Argentina (AP) - The governor of Argentina's Buenos Aires province says at least 46 people have died in flooding due to torrential rains in his provincial capital.

That increases the overall death toll from three days of rains to at least 52.

More than a quarter-million people remain without power in Argentina's capital and surrounding province.

Nearly 1 million people live in and around the city of La Plata and many are struggling to recover even as more rain is in the forecast.

Gov. Daniel Scioli said Wednesday that emergency workers are focusing on the people most in need.
