ROCA SALES (Brazil), Nov 20 — Flooding and landslides triggered by heavy rains in southern Brazil have claimed at least six lives over the past week, authorities said yesterday.

The fatalities occurred in the states of Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul, and major property damage in the latter was reported as thousands of people sheltered in gymnasiums, deputy governor Gabriel Souza said on X, the former Twitter.

Several towns in Rio Grande do Sul were flooded when the Taquari River overflowed its banks.

In one of them, Roca Sales, dozens of volunteers worked Sunday to clear streets blocked by a brown mess of mud and debris left by the river, an AFP journalist observed.

Some streets were completely covered with mud, and trees were torn down.

Southern Brazil has been hit hard in recent months by extreme weather events such as torrential rain and a cyclone in September that left more than 50 people dead. Experts say climate change is fuelling many of these disasters.

In Santa Catarina state, fatalities were also reported from heavy rains that began on Tuesday, and the governor declared a state of emergency in 64 towns.

In the four hardest-hit cities, the rain that fell in three days was more than double what was expected for the entire month of November. — AFP
