Dezenas de mortos em inundações e dezlizamentos na costa brasileira
February 20, 2023 - As autoridades do estado brasileiro de São Paulo dizem que morreram pelo menos 36b pessoas nas inundações e deslizamentos de terras, obrigando algumas cidades a cancelar os festejos de Carnaval.
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.
