Extreme weather has been shown to affect many areas of our planet

Extreme weather has caused severe floods and heat waves in many places on our planet, which can no longer be attributed to the disappearance of El Niño.

Floods, landslides and scorching heat claimed many lives. Extensive physical damage has been caused and several temperature and rainfall records have been broken in another manifestation of the ongoing climate emergency.

The state of Rio Grande do Sul in southern Brazil, bordering Argentina and Uruguay, is experiencing the worst floods in 80 years, according to the Brazilian Geological Survey. Flood photo gallery below:

Rio Grande do Sul's Civil Defense announced at 12 noon on May 5 that a total of 75 people had died in the state so far. There are 6 additional deaths under investigation. At least 103 people were missing and 155 others were injured.

In addition, Houston, Texas, the fourth largest city in the United States, was flooded due to heavy rains. Extreme weather events have also been reported in Southeast Asia and Vietnam. The country has broken at least 100 heat records. Last week, the temperature peaked at 44 degrees Celsius in two settlements. According to the country's meteorological agency, the weather is expected to be warmer this month.

The most dramatic sign of the severe weather hitting Vietnam was in the southern province of Dong Nai, where hundreds of thousands of fish died in the reservoir.

Similar extreme weather incidents have recently been reported in the Indian subcontinent. The Ganges region of West Bengal and the coastal state of Kerala have also reported some unusually intense heatwaves in recent days.
