Rain kills 1, injures 27 in S Brazil

October 16th, 2009

brazil-rainHeavy rain and winds hit southern Brazil on Wednesday night and in the early hours of Thursday, causing one death and leaving 27 others injured.

The rain, which was accompanied by hail in some areas, hit 12 towns in Parana state, causing damage to 2,000 houses, local Civil Defense Services said. Winds in the region reached 115 kilometers per hour.

In the town of Santa Helena, the strong wind lasted only a minute, but that was enough to cause the death of 28-year-old Leandro Taucher, whose car was hit by a falling tree. Another occupant of the car was injured in the accident.

Only in Santa Helena, about 2,000 people were affected by the rain. In the town of Cascavel, a truck driver was injured when a tree fell on his vehicle. Other 25 people were injured in the small town of Iguatu.

In Curitibanos, the hailstorm destroyed a school; 2,500 students were left without classes. The roof of a shopping center in Cascavel collapsed, but no one was injured.

According to the Civil Defense, a transmission line was damaged by the strong wind, leaving about 300,000 people from 30 municipalities without electricity for hours. In some regions of the state, the rain caused floods as well, forcing the citizens to leave their homes.

Brazil’s southern region has been suffering with the bad weather for over a month now. The storms are a regular occurrence in this time of the year; last November, 135 people died in a huge flood in neighboring Santa Catarina state.
