Brazil’s worst natural disaster ever

 

 

 

 

These photos of the tragedy that devastated areas of the state of Rio
de Janeiro prove that an image can be more valuable than 1000 words.

I strongly suggest visiting the website  “The big picture,” to find the following pictures
and many other breathtaking proves that reality can be more
terrifying than any horror movie.

  1. Ricardo,
    Thanks for posting the link. One of my sons (born in Brazil) is a firefighter/paramedic in California and his reaction was where are the rescue workers and what took them so long? My question is that now that Dilma and Cabral have come and gone, what are people doing in preparation for the next flood and mudslide? We all know the rains come regularly every year and every year we have flooding, slides and deaths. I remember this stuff back in the 60’s when I was a kid? For a country that is the darling of the investor community, the public sector (and the citizens) need to be less complacent. If there is no change, we will have more of the same.
