A Brazilian man jumps from a bridge nearly 25 meters (82 feet) above the flooded Itacaiunas River in the Amazon Basin of northeastern Brazil, as the river's water flows past its banks into surrounding forest and neighborhoods, April 15, 2006. Brazilian Civil Defense officials confirmed the death of eight people and more than 116,000 residents of 19 cities in the region affected by rivers that have reached as much as 12 meters above normal level in the current rainy season.

Water level drops in the Brazilian Amazon due to worst drought in decades
Two men pull their boat up along a cliff exposed by the receding Rio Solimoes river, one of the two biggest tributaries of the Amazon River, near the city of Manaquiri, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon Basin, October 7, 2005. Drought in the Amazon rain forest, normally one of the world's wettest regions, shows the weather cycle is swinging to one extreme rather than signaling climate change, local meteorologists said Thursday.
