Severe Weather

Brazil

On 9 and 10 August the passage of an extratropical cyclone caused heavy rainfall in several cities in the state of Santa Catarina, Brazil. Cities in Santa Catarina, particularly those closest to the coast, had to interrupt essential services (schools and primary health care services) due to damages caused by the heavy rains. In total, 170,000 residents of Santa Catarina were without power. In Criciuma, Santa Catarina, 30 families were removed from their homes by the Civil Defense due to risk of flooding and structural damage; residents were placed with friends or family or temporarily placed in a shelter organized by the municipality.
