Heavy rains caused deadly floods and mudslides in Brazil.

At least 270 people were killed and lots of people are missing.

257 people were killed in several mountain towns near Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday.

The rains caused flood and mudslide that swept the villages.

Some families were buried as they slept.

And in Sao Paulo state, 13 people were killed.

Hillsides and riverbanks were swept by the heavy rains, destroying cars, roads, houses and other building.

Thousands of people are still stranded and waiting for the rescue teams to arrive.

Torrential rain tore through Rio de Janeiro's mountains, killing at least 64 people in 24 hours, the state's emergency rescue office said Wednesday. The death toll is expected to rise as firefighters reach remote valleys and steep mountainsides where neighborhoods were destroyed by mudslides and flooding, said Jorge Mario Sedlacek, the mayor of Teresopolis, a mountain town just north of Rio where at least 54 people died.
