Race To Help Brazil's Flood Victims

Brazilian officials are scrambling to get food and medical aid to flood victims in the nation's northeast, where at least 41 people have been reported dead in two states.At least 120,000 have been driven from their homes since rains began late last week.The Civil Defence department of Alagoas state received reports on Tuesday from local officials of 600 people missing in the chaos, but suggested most were not in danger.The heavy rains started last week and within two days brought a month's worth of water on areas of Alagoas and neighbouring Pernambuco state.Officials in Alagoas are touring flooded areas, going to each town and trying to verify if those reported missing simply fled to other areas - or if more bodies are being discovered.
