Mine Dams Burst in Brazil; 1 Dead, Homes Covered in Mud

“Brazilian rescuers searched feverishly Friday for possible survivors after two dams burst at an iron ore mine in a southeastern mountainous area. Authorities said one person was killed, four were injured and 13 were missing. The Thursday afternoon rupture unleashed a mix of water and ore mining residue on a small village 7 kilometers (4 miles) downhill. Images from Globo TV showed the area awash in a sea of clay-red mud that tossed cars on their sides and blanketed buildings.”
