Brazil floods.


Vin.

Recommended Posts

As important and as damaging as the floods are in QLD, Australia. There are also floods in Brazil that have left 335 people at this time dead.

This isn't a omg the world is ending posts, don't get it confused.

More a concern that so many lives have been lost.

Hopefully not many people from the forums have been affected by the floods. And condolences if anyone has been.

 

When will the crazy weather end?

Dead animals, lots of floods. Sounds to me like something is going on with the planet. Maybe magnetic reversal or something like that. Maybe gamma waves and Solar explosions have something to do with this. It's not exactly a common things. But it will probably pass soon. Sad about the people.

 

Some people say it's that HAARP thing Americans have. I'm not denying any possibilities at this point. Sounds like someone is f*cking up the weather.

You're joking right? Stuff like this happens every year, time and time again, and everytime there are people drawing conclusions of conspiracies.

 

It sucks, of course, and I can't imagine what it'd be like (last major flood here was in 1956 I believe) but that's just the planet we live on.

These floods happen every year here in Brazil. Always with a lot of people dead and all. Thing is, here, we know it happens, and we don't do anything about it either. The people expect the government to fix everything, and the government expect people to forget about it in a month or two after it's over. A couple days ago, on TV, they were doing a report on an area that was hit bad, and some dude was saying "I live here for 30 years, and this happens at least twice a year! The government isn't doing anything! I just lost another refrigerator!". I mean, really, you live in the place for 30 years, you know it happens at least twice a year, and yet you do nothing to help your place not get hit by the water by making your entrance higher or something? And yet you continue to throw trash where it doesn't belong?

The major problem here in São Paulo is trash, tons and tons of plastic bottles are thrown in the sewers and rivers and whatnot. All that stuff clogs up everything, and there's no place for the water to go, except up.

/rant

 

Anyway, the majority of those hit are in the shanty areas, where they build their homes ilegally and in hills that are prone to comming down with a rain anyway. These rains will go away soon, and in a month or two noone in Brazil will remember. At least until next january, when everything will happen the same way again.

Poor people are always hit the hardest. And it's a real shame, because the employers that depend on them can just up and leave, or built flood-proof properties, etc, and they'll always have more poor folk to hire come next year because the other thing poor folk is good for is makin' more poor folk.

 

It's a system destined to fail.

C'mon man, conspiracy theories are cool. Get with the program. It's all the work of Illuminati lizard people. They have a secret hand shake you know...

 

About Cidamelo, she is annoying but I hope she's alright.

Agreed, in the end the only way it can be really solved if the affected community come together and help rebuild themselves, but the government will have to help with money and aid, other countries too. With the illegal housing thing too is a quagmire. If there house gets washed away they can't rebuild because they don't own the actual land. This has happened in Haiti and it still lies in ruin.

Todays paper in Adelaide, Australia. Friend posted it on facebook. Bear in mind that today there was also 13 pages on the Australian floods.

I hear ya, and I too know she is a big girl and can fend for herself.

 

If there was a natural disaster in your neighborhood you would like the moral support and love from your GTAF brothers and sisters too. Just too know that the people here who recognize your name have enough human compassion to hope the best for your well being.

She'll be alright. For all we know she's simply holed up in another town far away from the rapidly rising water spamming the hell out of another forum. tounge.gif

I really hope she isn't affected, but it isn't necessarily a bad thing if she decides to stop posting.

335 dead, thats a big number, the Brazil floods barely get any attention, i hope there is a flood appeal for them as well, the damage bill will probably not be as high, but the people of brazil need more help than most of the Australians who got hit by the floods.

I hope she's alright. It's weird that she stopped posting and she lives in Brazil.

 

EDIT: I think she's alive, I saw this when I looked on her profile

I live almost 2 hours away from the affected cities in Rio and things are getting worse. There're about 500 identified bodies, but there's an estimate of 800 deaths, counting with missing people.

Roads are blocked because of collapsing risk and it's hard to send donations.

Those floods happens every year, but people aren't prepared to the consequences here.

I live on the plains, so I wasn't affected this time. I think this and this can explain what's happening.

She lives at Minas Gerais if I'm not mistaken, and it was not affected by the floods. So chill out guys, she'll be back.

And seriously guys? Are you impressed with this? It happens every year. confused.gif

Doesn't happen where we live broski. Of course if you grow up in a country where something happens often you'll find it usual. If I lived in a place where every year monsters came out and we all had to hide under our covers or be torn to shreds you'd be surprised but we'd all think of it as just a part of living there.

 

How do you know where she lives?

I'm also quite used to Brazil flooding, since I live in Uruguay, but this year it's been worse (or gotten more coverage which is basically the same)

 

Still, good luck to our fellow members who happen to live in Brazil, I hope you and people you now come out unaffected
