Dutzende Tote nach Überschwemmungen und Erdrutschen an der Küste Brasiliens

February 20, 2023 - Behörden im Bundesstaat Sao Paulo melden mindestens 36 Tote durch Überschwemmungen und Erdrutsche, Karnevalsumzüge wurden abgesagt.

Dozens of people are missing and while the number of dead is expected to rise, rescue workers say they hope to pull some of those trapped in flooded homes out of the mud alive.

The state government reported at least 35 deaths in São Sebastião and in Ubatuba, some 80km north-east, a seven-year-old girl was killed when a boulder weighing two tonnes hit her home.

Hundreds of people have been displaced and evacuated, the BBC said.
