Brazil mudslides kill at least 104 as worst rains in 90 years hit Petropolis
Euronews says At least 104 people have died from floods and mudslides that swept away homes and cars in the city of Petropolis, the locality’s Civil Defence said on Thursday, two days after the worst rains in 90 years hit the tourist city north of Rio de Janeiro.
“At this stage, we have recorded 104 deaths and the firefighters have found 24 survivors,” the locality’s Civil Defence said amid a particularly deadly rainy season in Brazil.
More than 24 hours after the deadly deluge early Tuesday, survivors were digging to find lost loved ones. Rio de Janeiro’s public prosecutors’ office said in a statement Wednesday night that it had compiled a list of 35 people yet to be located.
