With one destructive rainstorm barely over and another expected this weekend, people across Orange County spent Friday trying to step up relief efforts for flood victims in Tijuana. Their efforts ranged from that of Angelica Orozco of Santa Ana, who spent Friday calling members of her church parish for donations, to Sergio Velazquez, publisher of a local Spanish-language weekly newspaper, who is organizing a large drive for relief supplies with the help of a Los Angeles radio station.

RIO DE JANEIRO - Highways and bus transit ground to a halt in parts of Brazil early Friday, and flights were delayed as Brazilians launched on their long Easter holiday weekend. Brazil's transportation system has been the subject of heated debate recently. Some worry that it will buckle under the pressure of thousands of visitors who will descend on the country in June for soccer's World Cup tournament. The country is struggling to finish transportation facilities and stadiums. Others say its experience hosting major events such as the annual Carnaval or last year's visit by Pope France make it uniquely prepared to handle huge crowds.

Inside Colonia Mariano Matamoros, remnants of some of the worst flooding in at least a decade remained Saturday as a caravan of several U.S. cars and trucks with donated food, clothing and water from Orange County arrived in this Mexican community. "It's really a disaster here," said Jose Rodriguez, 45, of Tustin as he and a dozen other volunteers pulled into the muddy parking lot of a local high school, which was being used as an emergency shelter for more than 250 flood survivors.
