At least 291 have died in all municipalities affected by floods and landslides, according to the Rio State Civil Defense Department, with scores still missing and thousands more left homeless. Residents of the three hardest hit mountainside towns worried over how long many other houses could cling to collapsing hillsides. News media reported nearly 400 dead. Torrential rains that soaked the hills and mountains outside Rio for days finally pushed massive walls of sodden earth down onto the towns early on Wednesday. Television images showed devastated neighborhoods in nearby Teresopolis and Petropolis filled with rivers of mud that had ripped homes from their foundations. Cars were submerged in water while mud and chunks of concrete made roads impassible. ft: http://www.nytimes.com/2011/01/14/wor...
