Drought and Deluge States of Emergency Declared in Brazil

Posted by feww on May 9, 2012

Brazilian Amazon plagued by worst floods ever; NE Brazil declares drought emergency

Part of the Brazilian Amazon is under a state of emergency due to worst floods ever, while Brazil’s northeastern region has declared a separate state of emergency in 266 district due to severe drought.

The drought has destroyed large swathes of cropland, affecting hundreds of cities and towns across the region, and leaving ranchers struggling to feed and water cattle, reports said.

The drought is expected to continue until October, and possibly beyond.


The carcass of a cow, which died due to the drought, is seen on the ground near Maracas in Bahia state, northeast Brazil May 5, 2012. While a swath of the Brazilian Amazon is under a state of emergency as rivers overflow in one of the worst floods ever, the country’s northeastern region faces its worst drought in the last 30 years, affecting well over 500 towns and cities, according to data from different government monitoring agencies.  Reuters/Ricardo Moraes.
