Floods and landslides sweep through mountains in Brazil, over 300 killed

43014.jpegAt least 335 people have died and dozens are missing after floods and landslides swept through mountain towns in southeastern Brazil.

Heavy summer rain has fallen on the Serrana mountain region, north of Rio, since the start of the week. Worst hit is the town of Teresopolis, 40 miles north of Rio, where reports say at least 114 people have died in 24 hours. Images from the town, home to 180,000 people, showed tonnes of mud and water crashing into homes and washing cars away, Sky News reports.

The heavy rains triggered mudslides in the towns of Teresopolis, Nova Friburgo and Petropolis.

Brazilian Dilma Rousseff has released emergency aid worth 320 million euros to fund the rescue operations, euronews says.
