The death toll from a massive dam collapse in southeastern Brazil rose to 60 Monday morning, with close to 300 people still missing, according to authorities. Rescue efforts continued into Monday after the search was called off for about 10 hours on Sunday over fears that a second dam might give way. Authorities told an estimated 24,000 people to get to higher ground, but by that afternoon, engineers said the second dam was no longer at risk.
