Torrential rains flood Brazil


Experts say it's the strongest storm to hit Mato Grosso do Sul state in nearly 50 years.

A massive thunderstorm rolled through the Brazilian city of Campo Grande on Saturday night prompting authorities to declare a state of emergency.

Dozens of cars were submerged and dragged by torrents of water. Chunks of asphalt were uprooted and some streets were completely destroyed. Nearly 90 millimeters of rain fell in roughly 90 minutes.

Emergency workers worked around the clock to clear the mud that filled the streets.

Thankfully, there have been no immediate reports about dead or injured people.
