And this stormy weather will affect the northern state of Sao Paulo and urban areas in Brazil.

On Friday, according to a report from Brazil's National Meteorological Institute, a cold current from the south will reach southeastern Brazil, but due to the previous hot weather in Brazil, the encounter between the cold current and the hot atmosphere will form a strong stormy weather.

The stormy weather will affect the northern and urban areas of the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo, the southern and rural areas of Minas, as well as the southern part of Espiritu Santo and the entire state of Rio de Janeiro. And, according to Brazil's National disaster and warning Centre, there may be floods and landslides in these areas, where rainfall may exceed 100 millimeters per day, winds may reach 100 kilometers per hour, and will last for several days. These states are on "serious danger" alert after a weather warning was issued by Brazil's National Meteorological Institute.

For the Brazilian coffee industry, the states of Sao Paulo, Minas Gerais and Esp í rito Santo and Rio de Janeiro are all the main coffee producing areas in Brazil, and the three states of Sao Paulo, Milas Gerais and Esp í rito Santo account for 48% of Brazil's total coffee production. Usually, Brazilian coffee berries are harvested from May to August, and they are now in the fruiting period, and storms will shoot down the fruit, and high winds will also blow down the fruit, which will affect the harvest and yield of coffee berries. so industry insiders urge farmers and coffee farms to take precautions.

However, recent torrential rains have killed at least 24 people in the states of Espiritu Santo and Rio de Janeiro in southeastern Brazil, Xinhua reported. Among them, in the state of Espiritu Santo, torrential rains caused flooding, a number of roads were blocked, more than 5700 people were destroyed by floods and homeless, and 16 people were killed.

In addition, in the state of Rio de Janeiro, torrential rains killed eight people, of which the hardest hit was the inland mountains, which caused 238 landslides in loose soil, and the early warning center said that the probability of landslides in the next few days is still very high, the risk coefficient is very high. It can be said that at present, many states in southeastern Brazil have suffered different disasters, and the current situation is in chaos, so it is impossible to estimate the impact on the industry for the time being, and it is also difficult to estimate the degree of loss and damage in some remote areas. In addition, some experts said that due to the great changes in the weather, there will be similar bad weather in the future, which needs to be taken precautions.

In addition, with the persistence of dengue fever in Brazil and the breeding of mosquitoes by torrential rains, the death toll from dengue fever in Brazil has reached 153 and the case bureau remains high. So far this year, there have been more than 2.01 million cases of dengue fever in Brazil. Now both public and private hospitals in Brazil are overcrowded. Therefore, people in the coffee industry said that apart from worrying about the impact of torrential rains on future coffee production, they are also worried that with the persistence of dengue fever, there will be a shortage of manpower during the next coffee picking period, resulting in a slow harvest.
