Brazil’s government has declared $35.5m (200 millions Brazilian reals) in aid to disaster victims in the country’s northeast region, where 20 people have been killed and thousands of people have been forced to relocate due to severe flooding.

A whopping 116 municipalities across the State of Bahia were declared an emergency state on Tuesday due to the heavy rains that have been pouring down on this region from the middle of November.

Cities in five or more states located in Brazil’s north as well as southeast have also experienced flooding in the last few days.

Situation in Bahia where there are around 15 million residents, was deteriorated considerably on Christmas Eve, when the majority of residents were forced to leave their homes in search of higher ground after two of dams slid open. The rain is expected to continue across this week.Far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro who is currently on vacation in the southern State of Santa Catarina, announced the relief assistance on Twitter in the early hours of Tuesday.

Brazilian Minister of Regional Development Rogerio Marinho said more assistance is on the way. “We’re in the process of getting a precise assessment (of the damages) to figure out what’s needed and what’s required,” he told journalists.

Bahia Governor Rui Costa claimed that nearly 50 000 people were displaced and that 5,000 homes will be required for $71 million (400 millions of reais).

“The destruction is massive,” Costa told reporters. “It seems like Bahia has been pounded.”

Over the past few days, dramatic scenes of rescuers removing residents out of second-story windows have been filmed across huge stretches of Bahia.

Five dams further in Bahia are in danger of burst according to disaster relief officials stated. Bridges as well as roads that are state and federal within the State were damaged and were rebuilt to enable food and other supplies to be distributed to people who are in dire need.

State firefighters stated in a statement issued on Tuesday that they were directing the evacuation of neighborhoods in four municipalities due to the “imminent danger of flooding”.
