Cyclone Kills 9, Causes Floods and Damage in Southern Brazil

Wednesday, 01 July 2020 01:39 PM EDT

RÍO DE JANEIRO (AP) — A cyclone has hit the southern region of Brazil, killing nine people and causing floods.

The nine died Tuesday in the state of Santa Catarina, while two people were missing, according to civil defense officials. Three of the deaths occurred in Tijucas, a coastal city on the outskirts of Florianópolis, capital of Santa Catarina. Xanxerê and Chapecó, two cities in the west of the state, were the most affected by damage after rain and strong winds.

In Rio Grande do Sul, another affected state, there were more than 1,100 evacuees.

The storm knocked down trees and power poles, and caused landslides. In Santa Catarina, more than 700 thousand people were without electricity on Wednesday morning.

Authorities warned that strong winds will persist on Wednesday and said flooding could occur in southern coastal regions.
