The National Institute of Meteorology (Inmet) this Saturday (2) issued an orange warning of storm danger for the three states in the southern region of Brazil.
Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul are expected to experience intense rain and strong winds between tonight and Monday morning (4). The institute also warns of the risk of hail, electricity cuts, damage to crops, falling trees and flooding.
Rainfall is expected to vary between 50 and 100 millimeters per day and wind gusts can reach 100 km/h. The alert starts at 9pm today and ends at 10am on Monday.
In this scenario, Inmet’s instructions are for residents not to take shelter under trees, due to the risk of falls and electrical shocks. The recommendation is not to park vehicles near transmission towers and advertising signs. The institute recommends, if possible, turning off electrical appliances and the general energy supply.
