The situation in a neighborhood close to Guaíba is marked by the most severe impact of flooding. Residents were caught off guard when the waters rose rapidly, forcing the deactivation of vital pumps to prevent further damage. One longtime resident described the complete loss of her belongings, a scene repeated in countless homes in the area.

Fear of leaving their homes

The dilemma of evacuating or staying at home has been a difficult decision for many. With the threat of looting and the lack of a safe haven, some choose to stay despite the obvious risks. Volunteers have stepped up to advise and assist, but express the need for more effective coordination with local authorities.

São Leopoldo, one of the most affected cities, had around 80% of its population displaced. Temporary shelters were established, but the reality of having been saved does not lessen the pain of the loss of the population and the uncertainty of the future.

The tragedy has also provoked reflections on residence in the region. Families consider leaving the state, unable to bear the anxiety and fear that each new rain brings.
