Brazil Flooding Death Toll May Reach 1000

Authorities fear that the death toll could reach 1000, as there are currently 730 confirmed dead and at least 207 people missing.

The Wall Street journal reports that despite a massive recovery effort, it is very difficult to get an accurate count as victims are still being found. The situation is further complicated where in areas entire families are unaccounted for, making it very difficult to compile an accurate list of those affected by the flooding and mudslides.

The search is including local hospitals and shelters in hopes of finding survivors .
