In Brazil a Sao Paulo suburb has been hit by severe flooding following heavy rains.

Houses were destroyed and whole districts turned into rivers.

The country’s southeastern region is experiencing its worst drought for 80 years but the floods – the latest of several this year – will do little to alleviate it.

Across the state thousands have had to leave their homes because of floods and mudslides.
