  • Flash floods damage cars, streets in Rio de Janeiro

    Rio de Janeiro residents walk by cars damaged by torrential rain, as city workers try to clean the streets of the rubbles left by flash floods that killed at least three people. A man was killed after he was caught in flooding in the south of the city, while two women died when a house in a nearby favela collapsed, Rio de Janeiro mayor Marcelo Crivella told reporters. Schools throughout the city were closed and power was knocked out in some areas. Heavy downpours often cause flooding in Rio de Janerio as rain overwhelms the city´s creaky infrastructure. Impoverished favelas, built on the hills in the city, are usually the hardest hit areas. IMAGES
