In this¹ region a big patch of land is flooded. Though I repaired a
really messed up river in the west of it the and some other minor stuff
in that region the tiles remain blue.
Could someone more experienced have a look, please?

I've been doing a lot of tidying up coastline data throughout the world in
the last month, and although I'm pretty sure that I have not created any
further errors, some of the areas which needed tidying were quite complex,
and an error or two may have crept in.
I thought I'd wait till the next set of the coastline error checker files
 which should be next week, check if there are no major problems, and
then suggest to the sys admins that the coastline shapefiles be updated.
It would be a pity to update the shapefiles now to fix the issue in
Colombia, only for issues to appear elsewhere on the map.
If I had the bandwidth I'd download the planet file and produce the error
checker files myself, but I'm afraid its not really practical for me to do
