So i dont know if this made it abroad, but Rio Grande do Sul, Brasil, just had the biggest flood in history with the break of a dam, bigger even than the great flood of 41, the city is completely under water, bridges and road wich were the only acess crumbled under the water forces, people all over the country volunteered and guess what ? the police is barring volunteers from helping because they dont have license for the boats, yeah man, people are dying, taking shelter on their roof with no food,but the biggest danger is god forbid someone drive a boat without permit on the flooded streets with no acess.

this footage from a plane show the water rising, later that day the airport was stoped, i dont know if its still working as the rescue planes are coming from the military base up north https://youtu.be/vUtDYVjJQZo?si=ReGNW_-1-8auNz5D

So far, I haven't seen this getting covered in U.S. media. Flooding is an awful disruption to people's lives and health. Prayers for those at risk.

I hadn't seen this, and prayers for those affected.

I did however see the open combat in the streets last week.

Coverage here says that it is not improving. Water not receding yet.

How are you doing ? Hear many are without power and drinking water.


Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Someday your life will flash in front of your eyes. Make sure it is worth watching.

Thanks for all the goodwill, im not in a afected area but the problem is greater then the media is portraying, whole towns are lost. the governament is more worried about hiding its failure than helping, and im honestly not sure if this is just the standart left incompetency or downright political vengeance as rio grande do sul is in weight pro bolsonaro and lula has spoken in public that those people need to be extirpated on campaign (to the brazilian left anyone from right is far right and fascist,they always try to portray santa catarina and Rio grande as nazi nest because of the german influence of settlers)

the water is not receding in fact its going up, and a strong chilly wind and rain are expected for the weekend wich will make the operations harder.

-the ministry of propaganda activated the attorney general to PROSSECUTE people who were spreading fake news about the operations....well turns out the fake news were true as confirmed by one tv media not aligned with the gov. the state was withhelding trucks with donation supply because they had no receipt, and fining trucks that were over the weight limit with donations. the federal governament took 2 days to actually start moving, at one point a businessman from santa catarina had more private helicopters he donated for rescue operations in the air than the air force acting in the area
- lots of people are refusing to leave their homes for fear of plunder,specially since there is no actual control on the ground, i have a friend in the army and he told me, word is at least 6 neighbourhood are lost to traffic taking advantage and the army cant intervene without GLO wich the president and mayor are refusing so it doesnt taint their image for the upcoming months election.
-the army is not helping civilians to safeguard their safety, as they claim their mission is only rescue on the water,and if they acted as police they can be prosecuted,and the brigade is only working untill 18h, as such some provisional shelters were attacked and some people lost their last belongs
-they sent #%&*$# recruits to help, green boots from obligatory service, a bunch of kids ! they were complely lost without guidance from superior.
-there are reports now on x of people not being able to get food donation because someone set a limit of donations of thet day and told them to return the other day, like.....its not even governament food, they just wanted to centralize the distribution so it looks like they are doing something
-unlike the media claim, the majority of people rescue were done by the people not state agents, cos they stop searches when its start to rain or at 19h, while volunteers continued to work to find people even through the night and morning, its all on x.
(https://x.com/FlavioBolsonaro/status/1788982488305426559 and https://x.com/JoseMedeirosMT/status/1788966751142617185)

-the ministry of defence threatned to make a registry of people spreading such "fake news" i said above or tainting the image of the forces with negative "fake" stories,all already proven true by social media post vids.
-the min of propaganda denied brazil refused help from uruguay and said the far right was spreading fake news, only to be corrected by the mayor and uruguay
-brazil is currently refusing international help so they can pretend to the population who rely only on tv media that they are doing everything and the situation is under control. ex from portugal https://x.com/anarcovegana/status/1789041866807067083
-private bussinessman started to pay to rebuild a important road to the city to help with donation but the governament fined and told them to stop.
-lula said he granted 50billion to help with the situation but the truth is.....he just released anticipation of the FGTS wich is like a retirement saving that is auto deduced from your salary, delaying the taxes in the affected region (wich means you will still have to pay them) and the majority of 40b is just available credit with lower interest, its not governament money its THEIRS ! so what he is actually promising is just shy of 1b, and considering last year rain flood affected many cities and he promised 600m and to this day only paid the city 300m.....i highly doubt that. the situation is on a war level, like i said above at least two towns were totaly leveled, the mayor says the town reek of death and the fear the death is in the thousands not hundreds like media is saying. there are footage of said areas and it looks like that tsunami event in bali some decades ago with bodies floating around.

rio grande do sul is the biggest producer of rice in brazil, so there is already talks of shortage, and it doesnt help that 2 months ago lula and his comunist governament decided to donate to Cuba our reserve rice surplus.But what piss me the most is this governament donated 150 water purifies to palestina this last week, but not a single one to RS. people had to make a online donation to buy them and distribute.

im honestly expecting people to burst up and a civil war start again in the south for the same reasons,guess history will repeat itself but it if does, this time the south wont be alone against the governament. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ragamuffin_War)

i was right ! they intend to use this as a excuse to pass a permanent state of climate emergency (some new bs they just invented) to prevent people to return to 1080 municipalities,many of those.....fertile lands.
also the water continue to move downward following the river and more rain is expected https://x.com/Jakelyneloiola_/status/1789406538714513674

the incompetent way the gov is dealing with this tragedy is creating a lot of ancaps, first the fireman team says they cant use their jetski because the mud waters are not ideal, so people donate theirs to civilians (not state) so they can get to people, now (yesterday 12/05) a storm came and the army stoped operations, but not the people who braved the storm to continue the help. all the while the ministry of defense and the ministry of propaganda are more worried about people showing this online than helping.

So sorry that our government chose to interfere in your last election to put those folks in charge.

I"m really sorry about this Blade. That disaster in Brazil is of epic terrible proportions. What's also sad is that a CAT 1 hurricane coming to Florida gets more news/media attention in the US than this major disaster did in Brazil.

now its affecting argentina and uruguay, both countries share the uruguai river with brasil, and the overflowing is flooding some neighboring cities, in uruguay 2000 people were evacuated, and 500 in argentina so far
both country need to call for a international investigation and sue brazil as it seems this was negligence from brazil the dam doors engines were stolen and theones remaining dont work because didnt receive mantainanece, the system is not fully sealed, and the of the 23 pump engines,only 4 were working.

climate emergency my ass, the dam was design to withstand 6m of water, it caved with 4. as always with every tragedy in brazil, its what we call, anounced tragedy, everyone knows about it,but, but only work to fix once it happens.

edit 15/05
look how fast the water came from a home cctv https://x.com/AntonioCGRodri/status/1790571779527725272 , most of the flooding happened at morning when people were sleeping and they want to convince us they had ample warning ?
and another horse rescue, this time on the third floor of a building https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Krm9Brw6jE8
more animal rescues by volunteers https://youtu.be/JUSEoCtEZ-E?si=1F2kL4fCFHM6nogo

also one worrying thing people are starting to pay attention, the governament say they saved 60k+ people, that is a small stadium worth of people, and yet you dont see that amount of people in any footage of the many improvised shelters, where did they go ? wouldnt be surprised if they just made up that number but still its worrisome on both perspectives.


now the mayor office is saying the amount of incoming donations is affecting the local comerce https://x.com/TomRipley22/status/1790566175274913993 , i though a river flowing through many cities was doing that, i guess i was wrong. i guess this is why they were stoping trucks with donation to fine because they didnt have a receipt for the itens. ill let you guess what political sphere he belongs to.

oh wow, now people are seeing schools of piranhas in the flooded streets, as if the situation wasnt harzardous enough as it is. https://x.com/Jakelyneloiola_/status/1791156814773452940
problably all the decomposing bodies smell atracted them, how conveniently for the gov that is trying to hide the bigger picture on casualties.
