Deaths as heavy rains torment southeastern Brazil
TRT World says Torrential rain in the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais has killed 10 people in two days, according to an official report, which warned of more intense downpours in the region.
The victims, among them an 11-year-old girl, died on Sunday and Monday due to rains, flooding, and landslides, the State Coordinator of Civil Defense said on Tuesday.
“January has been very difficult for Minas Gerais because of the quantity, and even more so the concentration, of rain in a short amount of time,” said the state’s vice-governor, Paulo Brant, in a video published on Instagram.
