RIO DE JANEIRO, May 12 — The death toll from heavy rains in Brazil’s Rio Grande do Sul state rose to 143, the local civil defense government body said today, up from 136 in the previous day, while another 125 people remain unaccounted for.

Last evening the government announced around 12.1 billion reais ($2.34 billion) in emergency spending to deal with the crisis that has displaced more than 537,000 people in the state, out of a population of around 10.9 million.

With this new money, more than 60 billion reais in federal funds has already been made available to the state, said the federal government in a statement yesterday.

More rain is expected today, filling rivers that were already full or overflowing, weather forecaster Metsul said last evening.
