Global warming is causing an increase in the amount of moisture in the air, which can result in increased precipitation when conditions are right for it to fall.

  The death toll from floods and landslides in southeast Brazil a week ago was officially increased to 64 Sunday, as the search continued for one missing person.

Among the confirmed toll, 18 were children, the Sao Paulo state government said in a statement.


More than 2,400 people were displaced by the downpour which washed away homes, roads, clinics and other infrastructure.


The South American country has been hit by a series of deadly weather disasters in recent years, which experts say are likely being made worse by climate change.
