It is a matter of life or death as heavy rains batter Brazil, sending water rushing through the streets and thousands of people fleeing for safety.
An entire town in Rio de Janeiro state had to be evacuated after floodwater burst a nearby dam, unleashing a torrent which headed straight for the community.
The floods and mudslides that have hit Brazil's south-east since the start of the year have claimed several lives. Nationwide, more than two million people have been affected.
