Nature's fury hits Brazil

6 years ago18 views

Floods and mudslides in Brazil have killed more than 330 people, with more feared dead after three towns just north of Rio De Janeiro were hit on Wednesday.

A month's worth of rain fell in one day in parts of Rio De Janeiro state and roads and bridges were swept away by the mud.

Rescue efforts will begin again later on Thursday as the Brazilian President tours the area by helicopter.

Rescuers expect to find more bodies as they reach towns they cannot yet access, but more expected rain threatens to further aggravate the situation.

Al Jazeera's Gabriel Elizondo reports from Teresopolis, one of Brazil's worst affected areas.
