The floods/landslides in Brazil have finally been recognised in the news in the UK:
It seems things have got significantly worse over the past 24 hours- 335 dead now because of this and no doubt there's many more deaths that have yet to be announced. There are now three devastating floods sweeping across different areas of the globe- Sri Lanka, Australia and Brazil- a very bad start to the new year, indeed.
