Flooding In Southern Brazil Kills 31

Flooding In Southern Brazil Kills 31

Heavy flooding from a strong cyclone in Southern Brazil has reportedly killed 31, destroyed several homes, and displaced about 1600 people. 

More than 60 cities have been pummeled since Monday night by the storm, which has been Rio Grande do Sul state’s deadliest, Gov. Eduardo Leite said.

“The fly-over we just did, shows the dimension of an absolutely out-of-the-ordinary event,” Leite said in a video posted on the state’s social media accounts. “It wasn’t just riverside communities that were hit, but entire cities that were completely compromised.”

Some areas were entirely cut off after wide avenues turned into fast-moving rivers.

In Mucum, a city of about 50,000 residents, rescuers found 15 bodies in a single house. The water had risen as high as the electrical line. 

“The water arrived very fast, it was rising 6½ feet an hour,” Mucum resident Marcos Antonio Gomes said, standing on top of a pile of debris. “We have nothing left. Not even clothes.”

“There’s no way we can live here. This will come back. We have to abandon (this place),” Gomes said.

One woman died as she was swept away by the flood during a rescue attempt. 

Rio Grande do Sul was hit by another cyclone in June, which killed 16 people and caused destruction in 40 cities, many of those around Porto Alegre
