Death toll in Brazilian floods rises to 106

BRASILIA, 1st June, 2022 (WAM) — At least 106 people have died and 10 are still missing in Brazil, Reuters quoted the government as saying on Tuesday, as heavy rains tore through urban towns in the northeastern part of the country for a sixth consecutive day.

The governor of the northeastern state of Pernambuco, Paulo Camara, in an interview with local media, said the government’s priority was to find those still missing amid mudslides and major flooding.

The National Civil Defence said on Twitter that an alert was in place for the “very high” possibility of more flooding in Pernambuco, including its capital, Recife.
