Floods in southern Brazil kill at least 75 people over 7 days, with 103 people missing

Massive floods in Brazil's southern Rio Grande do Sul state have unleashed havoc, claiming the lives of at least 75 people and leaving another 103 missing over the past week, local authorities reported on Sunday. The catastrophic deluge has inflicted significant damage, forcing over 88,000 individuals from their homes and injuring at least 155 people.

 

The ferocious floods, triggered by incessant rains, have wrought destruction across the state, with landslides, washed-out roads, and collapsed bridges exacerbating the crisis. The scale of the disaster is unprecedented, with entire neighborhoods submerged and communities grappling with the aftermath of the calamity.

 

As the waters surged, rescue operations unfolded amid perilous conditions. A harrowing rescue mission saw an elderly man airlifted to safety from a remote area in Bento Gonçalves, underscoring the urgency of the situation. The Guaiba river reached record levels, surpassing those witnessed during a historic deluge in 1941, further exacerbating the plight of affected communities.

 

In response to the catastrophe, state Governor Eduardo Leite has called for concerted efforts akin to a "Marshall Plan" to facilitate the state's recovery. Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, accompanied by key ministers, visited the inundated regions to assess the devastation firsthand and underscore the urgency of proactive measures to mitigate future disasters.

 

The catastrophe underscores the urgent need for climate resilience measures in Brazil and beyond. Climate change exacerbates the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events, with El Niño exacerbating the situation in South America. Experts warn that without proactive adaptation measures, such tragedies will only become more frequent and severe, underscoring the imperative of concerted action to address the climate crisis.
