Brazil mudslides: At least 56 dead as 10 inches rainfall in three hours

Brazil’s President was in Moscow today as his country suffered the aftermath of severe rain. Dozens of people have been killed by flooding and mudslides.

Soldiers were trying to find survivors in the city of Petropolis where more than 10 inches of rain fell within three hours yesterday, almost as much as during the previous 30 days combined.

It is feared the death toll, currently 56, will rise rapidly. 11 years ago floods killed 900 in the same state of Rio de Janeiro.
