Many of  residents and rescuers are frantically looking for victims buried in mud as a large landslide in Niteroi, across a bay from Rio, destroyed dozens of homes.

Flooding had caused transportation chaos across Rio on Tuesday, but the city slowly returned to normal on Wednesday. However, despite the forecast, the rain did not ease and a heavy downpour created more misery for the denizens.  Forecasters have now warned the torrential rain will continue.

As of posting, at least 4,000 families have lost their homes, more than 10,000 structure are at risk of collapse.

FEWW Moderators expect this pattern to reoccur throughout South and North America, as well as in Europe and SE Asia this summer.
