International News: Brazil rain rain go away

This year, Brazil has been plagued with more rain than ever on record. 

Southeastern Brazil, specifically São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, has experienced the worst of the rain in the past month. According to CNN, this rain continued for 72 hours.

But, the flooding has not been the end of it for these Brazilian cities. This rain has caused many mudslides. They have killed at least 32 and more than 5,000 people have been displaced.

Brazilian homes are not built well so the mudslides easily sweep them away. The poor Brazilian people have nothing they can do as everything they own and sometimes even family is swept away by mud and rain.

With the mud covering many neighborhoods and sweeping away some, search teams were dispatched. These search teams included rescue dogs. The numbers of the missing climbed to 43 by the 5th of March, said Herald Bulletin news.

The rain doesn’t seem to be coming to a stop anytime soon. Hopefully Brazil can catch a break soon. But until they can, people will continue to lose their homes and go missing.
