Rio Grande do Sul is facing one of the biggest climate disasters in its history.  Due to heavy rains, which intensified on April 29, the volume of water accumulated in the rivers caused impacts in several regions of the state, including the valleys of rivers Taquari, Caí, Rio Pardo, Jacuí, Sinos, Central Region, Gravataí, Porto Alegre and Metropolitan Region, as well as the cities of Eldorado do Sul, Guaíba and Canoas.

The floods left cities practically submerged, as is the case of Eldorado do Sul, and the level of Lake Guaíba, which passes through Porto Alegre, reached the historical maximum level of 5.33 m on Saturday, May 5, according to the Geological Service from Brazil.

Many people had to abandon their homes in search of shelter in safe places, others were unable to leave before water invaded their homes, needing to be rescued in boats, jet-skis and boats.
