Apocalyptic floods, massive landslides in NE Brazil kill at least 31 people, with hundreds more missing and leave tens of thousands homeless
At least 31 people are dead and more than 1,000 others are missing after 3 days of heavy rain in north-eastern Brazil triggered deadly floods, and caused massive landslides, reports quoting officials say.
The town of Quebrangulo in the state of Alagoas is almost entirely submerged, forcing tens of thousands of panic-stricken residents to flee to higher ground, as up to 2,000 km of roads are washed away, hampering rescue efforts and delivery of aid.
