Rain causes a landslide on Avenida das Torres, in Manaus.

The rain that hit the Amazon caused a landslide on Avenida das Torres and flooding in Manaus and cities in the interior of the state this Thursday (1st). See the video above.

An embankment collapsed on Avenida das Torres, in Manaus, during the heavy rain that hit the capital in the morning. The clay fell onto the neighborhood/center direction of the road and caused a major delay in vehicle traffic.

In a note, the Municipal Institute of Urban Mobility (IMMU) informed that the section of the avenue was closed to minimize the inconvenience caused to drivers and maintain the fluidity of traffic in the affected area.

Agents from the institute are on site to divert traffic, which was redirected to the entrance to Baixada Fluminense.

On Louro Darco Street, in the Monte das Oliverias neighborhood, North Zone of Manaus, residents of houses that are close to a stream told the Amazon Network that some of the residences tend to flood when the water level rises in heavy rains like this Thursday.
