36 people killed as heavy rain causes mudslides in Brazil

Authorities say that at least 36 people were killed in Brazil after heavy rains caused flooding and landslides.

As rescue workers continue to search for victims and connect isolated communities in Sao Paulo state, a seven-year-old girl was among those who died.

Some tourists were trapped by roadblocks, unable to travel for Brazil’s carnival celebrations.

Felipe Augusto (the mayor of Sao Sebastiao) said that 50 homes had been destroyed by the landslides.


The Sao Paulo state government stated that the rainfall in the area had exceeded 600mm (23.6in.) in one day. This is one of the highest amounts in Brazil in such a short time.

Forecasts indicate that heavy rains will continue to hit Sao Paulo’s coast area, posing a challenge for rescue teams and increasing the possibility of more deaths.

After an extreme weather event that experts called unprecedented, Sao Paulo declared a state of emergency for six municipalities.

His office stated that Monday was the most affected day.
