Brazil floods kill at least 33, uproot thousands

RIO DE JANEIRO, Nov 24 (Reuters) - At least 33 people have been killed in floods in southern Brazil after days of torrential rain that set off mudslides and forced 20,000 from their homes, emergency workers said on Monday. Teams have been working around the clock using helicopters and motorboats to rescue those left stranded by the floods in southern Catarina state, which caused mudslides that engulfed several homes and isolated four municipalities.
