Death Toll in Brazil Flooding Rises to 14

RIO DE JANEIRO -- The death toll from days of heavy rains in the southeastern Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul has reached 14, authorities said Monday.

The latest reported victim is a 48-year-old man whose body was found Monday inside a home in the town of Capao do Leao, which was flooded late last week.

Around 3,600 people remain unable to return to their residences, though the state government said that clean-up and rebuilding efforts are already under way.

Rio Grande do Sul authorities have sent 10 truckloads of blankets, food and other supplies to the hardest-hit area, along the border with Uruguay. Most of the roads that were washed out have been re-opened, but route BR-116 remains shut down because rains caused the collapse of a major bridge.

Last November, more than 120 people died amid torrential rains and flooding in the neighboring state of Santa Catarina, while December saw 27 killed by flooding in the state of Minas Gerais. EFE
