The ongoing La Nina pattern is causing, that season of rain is anomalously strong and according to current news, more than 500 (549) cities in Brazil are under flood emergency.
From the newest events, it should be devastating floods in the city o Imperatriz, where was floodwater high up to roofs of houses, or deadly floods with landslides in Minas Gerais, where fell more than 200 mm / 24 hours.
The most populated regions of Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are in a danger, too /https://mkweather.com/floods-in-sao-paulo-more-than-100-mm-in-2-hours//.
