FLORIANOPOLIS, Brazil (AP) - Heavy rains and flooding have killed at least one person and are driving tens of thousands from their homes in the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina. The state's Civil Defense agency says that by Friday afternoon, one 66-year-old man was confirmed dead, and 62,536 people were forced from their homes. The flooding left 26 towns in a state of emergency. Even more serious conditions prompted a state of calamity to be declared in two towns, Brusque and Rio do Sul. Heavy rains in 2008 caused mudslides and flooding in Santa Catarina, killing 135 people in 16 towns.
