Ten Dead in Sao Paulo, Brazil Flooding.

January 15, 2014  Ten Dead in Itaoca, Sao Paulo, Brazil: Brazil’s Civil Defense Department has reported today that floods and landslides in a small village in the state of Sao Paulo have killed at least 10 people and a further 10 are missing.

The floods hit the small town of Itaoca on Monday 13 January 2014 after 5 hours of heavy rainfall through the night, Sunday to Monday. The heavy rain led to the overflowing of the Palmital River, forcing 300 to leave their homes for temporary shelter. Roads have been blocked and there is currently no power or clean water in the town.

This latest tragedy comes in a line of fatalities resulting from floods in Brazil. The Brazilian states of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo suffered from severe flooding on 19 December 2013. Earlier in December, parts of the state of Rio de Janiero were under water. At least 16 people died in landslides in Bahia on 8 December 2013. (Credits – Google, Floodlist and SudTV Battipaglia).
