According to Civil Defense, the neighborhoods where it rained the most were Ondina (102.4 mm), Federation (100.2 mm), Campinas de Brotas (85.8 mm), Pituba (83.6 mm) and Brotas (79 mm) .

The agency issued a warning of continued moderate to heavy rain over the next few hours. The estimate is that it may rain between 10 and 40 mm/h. There are risks of flooding and landslides.

The rains are caused by the formation of a Mesoscale Convective Complex (MCC). This system can cause heavy rain, thunderstorms, gusts of wind and even hail.

Some neighborhoods in Salvador recorded flooding, such as Vale das Pedrinhas and Armação.
