Widespread flooding in and around Brazil’s largest city of São Paulo has killed at least 13 people since the weekend, and the situation isn’t over yet — with more rain forecast this week.
A handful of the victims drowned while the rest — including a 1-year-old baby —died in mudslides, according to government officials.
While some parts will still flooded early this week, in other towns and cities the water had retreated and citizens began the clean-up process, dragging destroyed furniture and other belongings out onto muddy streets.
