Death toll in Brazil mudslides reaches 42

Sao Paulo, Mar 9 . The death toll from the mudslides in southeast Brazil’s Sao Paulo state rose to 42 after rescue workers found the body of a 37-year-old man under piles of earth and debris on Sunday (local time).
Another 36 people remain missing since unusually heavy rains hit coastal towns on Tuesday, collapsing ramshackle hillside houses in the poorer neighborhoods, reported Xinhua. The latest victim has been identified as Rafael Rodriguez, an instructor of Brazilian martial art capoeira, who died while trying to rescue the victims of a mudslide at a slum in Guaruja, one of Brazil’s most populous beachside resort towns.
Authorities have declared a state of calamity in Guaruja and received more than 30 tons of humanitarian aid from the federal government for survivors left homeless. Hampering rescue efforts, rains continued to lash this coast over the weekend.RSS
