Calamity State: Floods Kill 84 in the South of Brazil

Flood in Santa Catarina, Brazil The president of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, is expected to sign this Wednesday, November 26, a temporary measure authorizing emergency resources to deal with rescue and recovery action in the areas affected by a severe flood in the southern state of Santa Catarina.

The rainfalls that have been hitting that area since the weekend causing flooding and landslides have devastated the region and have  already killed 84 people, according to a report released by Santa Catarina's Civil Defense department this Tuesday afternoon.

Over 1.5 million people were affected by the rains. leaving 150,000 without electricity. 54,000 had to leave their homes and look for public shelter or find a place to stay at the home of friends or relatives. Heavy rains caused mudslides, which covered houses and businesses and washed out roads.

Officials said there is still a risk of more landslides. Flooding also cut natural gas supplies after rupturing a pipeline that runs from Bolivia to Brazil.

The town of Ilhota was the hardest hit by the floods, with 15 people killed after waters rose more than nine meters above normal.

Another 13 people died when they were buried by mudslides in the city of Blumenau – a tourist attraction founded by German immigrants and known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration.

Eight municipalities continue isolated due to landslides on the highways. They are São Bonifácio, Luiz Alves, São João Batista, Rio dos Cedros, Garuva, Pomerode, Itapoa and Benedito Novo.

Four federal roads (BR-101, BR-470, BR-282 and BR-376) were closed in some stretches due to the flooding. Other eight state roads (SC-401, SC-431, SC-408, SC-302, SC-474, SC-413, SC-416, SC-466) had also to be blocked in some areas.

Most of the deaths occurred in the cities of Blumenau (20), Gaspar (17), Ilhota (15) and Jaraguá do Sul (12). There were also fatal victims in Luiz Alves (4), Rodeio (4), Rancho Queimado (2), Benedito Novo (2), Itajaí­ (2), Pomerode (1), Bom Jardim da Serra (1), Brusque (1), São Pedro de Alcântara (1) and Florianópolis (1), the capital of the state.

In seven municipalities it was declared an emergency situation; in another six, a state of public calamity.

Victims are being helped by firefighters and police. Five Air Force and Army helicopters are also being used in the rescue effort.

The Brazilian federal government announced that it will send another three helicopters and two planes with food and medicine.

    [quote]. Few people will be able to come to terms with all of this information, that is 100% documented, and even then it is near impossible to reach the mass. I am very happy that you have acknowledged my comment and not used any popular “slogans” to attack me without looking into the available info. [/quote]

    After all is said and done, only those that are searching will find. There is evidence EVERYWHERE but one has to open their eyes to see it. Take the time to see it. And even then that is just the beginning if one wants to be part of the eternal solution.
    In short, this is defenitley as deep as it looks.

    Very interesting website. I am going to email you. And I will ask the same question. What is going on? What is the agenda? I used to live in Phoenix. For 3 years . I saw this all the time. The average person (like me) just thinks it’s smoke from a commercial airplane about to land at the airport.
    This is exactly the kind of stuff that makes me WANT to be a believer. I find comfort in this verse
    [quote]À‚ But the nations became wrathful, and your own wrath came, and the appointed time for the dead to be judged, and to give [their] reward to your slaves the prophets and to the holy ones and to those fearing your name, the small and the great, and to bring to ruin those ruining the earth.À¢€Â[/quote] [b]Revelation 11:18[/b]
    This will not go on indefinetly.
    The earth was created to be inhabited forever

    I am glad we have reached a happy medium. 😀 😉 I kept trying to tell you from the beginning that we had more in COMMON in our views than otherwise. It just proves that basically as humans we all want the same thing. It’s just that our BELIEF in how this “better world” is going to come about is at opposite ends of the spectrum.
    One day the U.N is going to say that I am terrorist. Because I “believe”. I am preparing for this now.
    I find it interesting though to observe people with your train of thought. You are FOR REAL with it.1 It amazes me just as much as it amazes you how I think. And how I can believe what I believe.This intrigues me. Seeing how you position colors what you say is very interesting.

    Anyway, so much is happening before Obama takes office. Which doesn’t surprise. This phase of the humiliation of the U.S has to be put well in place before he is sworn in. But my question is how long will the breakdown process be before NAU. Or the Amero. Or the national i.d cards come out???? It is hard to imagine 3 more years of a breakdown.
    This is such a show that keeps me on the edge of my seat.

    [quote]UNITED NATIONS Wheather Warfare Treaty…[/quote]

    This might be slightly more than I can handle 😀 😥
    I’m afraid to go there. 😀 😉 😀 To think the weather is manipulated by the “movers and shakers” also. Maybe the ones of a “spirit nature” . But the human ones too?
    Let me get a full nights rest before I delve into this one 😉 😀

    I agree though, “time is becoming shorted”. It is really time to FOCUS.

    Augustus!
    😀 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Wow!…..
    My friend, EVERYTHING is all in the mind. Wouldn’t you agree?
    Now as “nature” has it (whether it was Intelligently Designed or not) positive thought patterns create positive emotions thereby benefiting one’s “entire state of well-being (btw,”scientifcally proven) . So if it takes “mythical allegories” to achieve that end, so be it. 😉
    Consider this. The objective of the ENEMY ( an alien called Satan) is to kill you sooner or later. If he can get that accomplished STRESSING you out with FEAR during your short journey in this “Cold Universe”, all as well with him. Mission accomplished.
    The opposite of FEAR is LOVE.. LOVE is GOD . And MAN is made in LOVE of GODS image. The perscription to keep your mind at peace/sane lies in KNOWING THIS.
    Try “spirituality”. Then in time you will cognitively see that you need a “PATH” or DIRECTION. You don’t just travel “aimlessly” through space. That is time wasting. And each of us only have so much time as a “living soul” ( for now anyway).
    Actually I agree, ( the Bible agrees) with you on many fronts. Madeliene Albrights idealogy is in the making NO DOUBT! It is already written.
    The U.S WILL ally with India leaving them in a catch 22 position with Pakistan. Watch this develop. What happened in Mumbai was critical. India is part of the game now , “officially”. And yes Brazil will regret “lying in bed” with the middle east as another poster put it. It IS going to be a mess.
    But in it all one can maintain “peace of mind” just knowing the ultimate “purpose” of it all. It IS better to KNOW.
    I loved Cavalhos article. Loved even more how there was little rebuttal of substance to it. 😉 🙂 😉 One only need take a scientific or better yet spiritual approach to politics and you UNDERSTAND things for what they are. And can PLAN accordingly.
    GOOD STUFF!

    Disturbing Sad And Prophetic….
    [quote]I’m particularly distressed because, less than an hour ago, I was protesting the equally horrible situation in Mumbai, UNAWARE than an equally dramatic (even if totally different) horror was affecting my motherland – your state in particular! [/quote]

    Things ARE moving along. That was a bold attack in Mumbai. Very sad.
    Augustus , there is no need to stress yourself out. GOD is going to take care of it all 😉 🙂
    All we are witnessing is the beginnings of RELIGION being “hated” with the outcome of it being “destroyed”.
    In the book that is “worthless toilet paper” or a “pile of dung” the prophecy is found at Revelation 17:15-17
    You help the “prophecy” along by spewing hatred of Islam, “creation, and religion in general. It’s a “position”.
    Spreading the “good news” from the gospels is a “position.
    “Indifference” is a position….. We all play a role on this stage. And as the drama unfolds the intensity of the scenes and the dramatic role each character will play becomes more evident. Everyone will be taken to their “core” You can’t watch the news without taking an “internal position”. And this is what it is all about.
    We have EMOTIONS and can RATIONALIZE unlike animals…… FOR A REASON 😉

    Theorical versus ACTUAL threats
    As much as I tend to be open-minded towards the threats which may exist, I must preclude from diverting my attention from the REAL threat which is FACTUAL and is POSED by ISLAM

    WARNING AGAINST THE ISLAMIC THREAT
    I could not sufficiently underline the extension of the horror, the anxiety and the concern which the new appalling Islamic attack (in India) which represents more one example of the danger which the Islamic World represents to the Civilized World (Europe, the Americas, Australia/NZ and Japan). Furthermore I am frustrated with the role played by the pacifist liberals who refuse to recognize the extension of cruelty the Islamic extremists are capable to cause against civilization

    ALERTA ANTI-MULCUMANO
    Eu nÀƒ£o poderia enfatizar suficientemente a extensÀƒ£o do horror, da ansiedade e preocupaÀƒ§Àƒ£o sobre este novo ataque repugnante o qual representa mais um exemplo do perigo que o Mundo Islamico proporciona ao Mundo Civilizado (Europa, Americas do Norte E Sul, Australia/NZ e JapÀƒ£o). Tambem estou extramente frustrado com o papel proporcionado pelos liberais pacifistas que se recusam a reconhecer a extensÀƒ£o do barbaridade que os extremistas Islamicos podem de cometer contra todos os povos civilizados!

    AVERTISSEMENT CONTRE LE RISQUE MUSULMAN
    Je ne pourrais souligner suffisamment l’extension de l’horreur, de l’anxiÀƒ©tÀƒ© et de la prÀƒ©occupation sur cette nouvelle attaque islamiste dÀƒ©goÀƒ»tante (a lÀ¢€™Inde) qui reprÀƒ©sente plus un exemple du danger que le Monde Islamique fournisse au Monde CivilisÀƒ© (Europe, AmÀƒ©riques du Nord Et du Sud, Australie/NZ et Japon). Aussi supplÀƒ©mentairement je suis frustrÀƒ© avec le rÀƒ´le proportionnÀƒ© par les libÀƒ©raux pacifistes qui refusent de reconnaÀƒ®tre l’extension de la monstruositÀƒ© que les extrÀƒ©mistes Islamiques peuvent commettre contre tous les peuples civilisÀƒ©s!

    sea of mud :the consequence of unaccountable politicians at all levels.
    What has happened in Santa Catarina is partly due to global warming- the regional sea temperature is two to three degrees above normal.There are also reports that the weather forecast for the Blumenau region last weekend failed as a result of the telemetry used to gather weather information.
    What is not beyond doubt is that the rapid expansion of the population and the lack of political will to implement, for example, existing plans to contain the river Itajai, have resulted in total catastrophe.
    No politician should be allowed to forget what has happened.The concern now will be if the money for reconstruction manages to reach those who really need it.

    The Rabbit Hole is never ending, and very dark. Few people will be able to come to terms with all of this information, that is 100% documented, and even then it is near impossible to reach the mass. I am very happy that you have acknowledged my comment and not used any popular “slogans” to attack me without looking into the available info.

    Feel free to contact me at this e-mail address if you want to discuss these issues in more detail. You have to see this for what it is, and that is an agenda. This floding just herded 78, 000 more people into the nearest ‘habitat Area’, you know these nice fuzzy terms the UN gives out to the public.

    UNITED NATIONS Wheather Warfare Treaty…
    I highly suggest that everyone goes into the links that I provide. Aerial spraying is not a “theory” and you REALLY need to do your research and open your eyes before you just let your programming make up your mind for you. Go into the links I provide and look at all the ‘chemtrail’ photos and information posted.

    After you become more familiar with the topic, you need to look up the UN Wheather Warfare Treaty that was signed in the 1970s where they talked about all countries that possesed the technology. HARRP and other related technologies can be used to cause earthquakes, tsunamies, hurricanes and everything else involved in wheather manipulation, as it is CLEARLY STATED IN THE TREATY AT THE UNITED NATIONS.

    Time is becoming shorted so we need to get this information out. There are no borders, all sovereignty was signed away at the UN.

    DNB (reflection upon compromising views) / JOAO (in full concurrance) —- inevitable future…
    DNB – I suppose it would be diplomatic, for now to adopt your double use of terminology, thus bringing everyone’s into the same fold… regardless whether viewing the issue at hand either as “scientific” or “spiritual” (which you undoubtedly prefer…

    JOAO – I holeheartedly agree with your latest oppinion… Though I can perceive a certain residual reluctant “sadness” concealed in your words, I’m glad you are in a position to clearly foresee the “likely prospects” of a major struggle lying ahead in our path…

    BOTH (JOAO / DNB) – Let the games begin… 😥

    I think India became ” part of the game”, since the Clinton Era and of course GWB continued the “Comradely Good relationship” with India. I am sure BHO is going to take it further. Why do you think that U.S approved the sale of Nuclear reactors to the Indians? Why do you think that erstwhile P.M. of U.Kay, Tony Blair is pushing for a permanent seat for India to in the U.N. Security Council?

    [quote]And yes Brazil will regret “lying in bed” with the middle east as another poster put it. It IS going to be a mess.[/quote]

    I am afraid so. It is going to be a real mess. I have a strange feeling that the Pakistani part of Kashmir is going to be gobbled up by the Indians with the blessings of all the nice folks involved. The Bombay “incident” is just a starter.

    DNB – Agreements / Distinctions / Conjecture / Surprise
    DNB
    Interestingly, in different ways we are united on this particular front, for i seem to recall your “empathy” for all issues involving “the Islamic Issue” (:-)).
    [quote]Augustus , there is no need to stress yourself out. GOD is going to take care of it all [/quote]

    DNB, I must concede to you at least one aspect of our “Diametrically Opposed Ideological-Spiritual” dispute: I commend your ability to derive so much “reassurance”, “peace of mind” and most importantly “solace” from your ephemeras believes, for they undoubtedly enable you to feel better when facing adversity, even if unbeknownst to any one in similar condition, all of such À¢€œcomforting peaceÀ¢€Â is based strictly upon meaningless allegories whose foundations (so I perceive) are built upon an ancient Mythological creedÀ¢€¦

    Because of this undoubtedly represents an advantage to you, I must recognize it and congratulate you for such amazing (truly hard to believe) À¢€œFortunate CircumstanceÀ¢€Â, the LACK of which, WE – Realist Scientific Hard-Core Atheists – must pay in order to benefit from awareness & exposure to the Truth of a cruel, cold UniverseÀ¢€¦ An ever-expanding À¢€œentityÀ¢€Â which resides in one of the infinite membranes of Multiverse of parallel alternatives, the very existence of EACH one of which, is entirely accidentalÀ¢€¦

    You surely get a lot of credit for such a fortunate state, since peace of mind is priceless, regardless of how it is attained!

    JOAO – YOUR COMMENT ABOUT CHILEAN WEATHER
    I spent considerable amount of time in Santiago (after Paris) in late 1999, and was astounded for experiencing the best weather I had ever enjoyed – for it was exceedingly dry. While Satiago (which is located in a Valley between chains of the Andes not too far from Valparaiso at the coast) enjoys dry weather further north (around Arica) it gets much DRYER, and in fact it experiences nearly desert conditions (not far from the Bolivian & Peruvian borders…

    JOAO – EXTREMELYH CONCERNED!!! GOT UPDATED INFORMATION ABOUT THE SEVERITY OF THE SITUATION A FEW MINUTES AGO AFTER CALLING RIO
    Joao
    As indicated in the other thread, I’m extremely concerned about the horrific situation in your state!
    I’m particularly distressed because, less than an hour ago, I was protesting the equally horrible situation in Mumbai, UNAWARE than an equally dramatic (even if totally different) horror was affecting my motherland – your state in particular!
    Needless to say there is very little information about it in the United States, and I had only found out about the “beginning of the crises through the BBC very late last night, when the situation was not yet nearly as bad as now.
    Again, I got the scope of the flood upon calling Rio tonight (less than an hour ago, when I contacted relatives to inquire about any coverage of the Mumbai attacks in Brazil… Needless to say, I was astounded to hear about the nation watching the drama in your state unfold on Brazilian Television
    PLEASE KEEP US ALL INFORMED

    Yes, based on the info & the pictures you sent I warned lots of folks. Some took the precautions and many did not.

    [quote]dont drive ,keep dry , [/quote]

    Thanks. Would you believe that some friends of ours escaped from being buried alive because of this advice? I think that the worse is still to come.

    [quote]will be making port later tonight in the north of chilian coast dry here ,
    fishing has been good got a 352 pound tuna,
    we were just stoped fishing for yellow tail to break the movement for a while
    and hooked a bid cow under the pask of small fish[/quote]

    Lucky you. One thing I did not understand though is how come the Pacific coast off Chile is dry, in spite of the volcano erupting and the South Atlantic coast is wet and miserable.

    Have a great stay in the dry land. How long do you intend staying there?

    Floods Kill 84 in the South of Brazil
    The death toll is sure to increase, because nobody knows how many vehicles with passengers are buried underneath the landslides along the highways since last Saturday. It is expected to take at least a week to clear the debris and reopen the Federal and State highways mentioned in the article. Unfortunately the weather forecast for the next few days is not encouraging.
