Dozens Dead, Hundreds Missing in Brazil Floods

June 22 Update: The New Zealand Met Service blog reports phenomenal rains in the early part of June (tip of the wind vane to Hot Topic).

Original post:
The Northern Hemisphere is not unique in experiencing recent heavy flooding. Dozens are known dead, hundreds are missing, and perhaps as many as 100,000 are homeless following several days of torrential rainfall, as much as 14", in northeastern Brazil. Flooding is reported to have destroyed entire villages in the states of Alagoas and Pernambuco.
