President Jair Bolsonaro takes an aerial trip of disaster zone after heavy rains tore through several urban neighbourhoods in the northeastern part of the country, leaving at least 91 people dead and dozens missing.
At least 35 people were killed by heavy rain that for days has lashed the Pernambuco state in northeast Brazil, authorities said.
President Jair Bolsonaro called the widespread destruction "like scenes of war" after his helicopter flyover, and Pope Francis sent a message of condolences to the community.
At least 19 people have died and some 500 families were left homeless across the state in the rains between Friday and Sunday, Sao Paulo state authorities say.
Some 630,000 people in the northeast Brazil are affected by the floods amid the heaviest December rainfall in the Bahia state in 32 years.
