President of Brazil visits again cities destroyed by storms

Brasilia, Jun 6 (Prensa Latina) Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva will travel for the fourth time to the state of Rio Grande do Sul to visit cities devastated by the rains and floods that began at the end of April.

According to information published by the government, Lula da Silva will visit at least two towns in the Taquari Valley: Cruzeiro do Sul and Arroio do Meio, which were severely impacted by the floods. Now both villages are facing great challenges in reconstruction issues and in the damaged communities.

According to the Planalto Palace, financial support will be announced, and provisional measures will be signed.

The mayor of Eldorado do Sul, state of Rio Grande do Sul, stated that it is urgent to clean the sewage network and the streets, which amasse garbage and debris. Construction equipment will be sent to deal with this problem and carry out urban cleansing.

A project debated between the state and the federal governments provides for the construction of a system of dams to prevent flooding in the municipality.

The latest bulletin from the Gaucho Civil Defense noted that 44 persons are still missing and 172 lost their lives.
