Nova Friburgo one month after the tragedy

Today, which marks the one month anniversary of the rains, floods and landslides which have killed at least 890 people in the RegiĆ£o Serrana of Rio de Janeiro, I visited some areas nearby the city of Nova Friburgo which have been devastated. My visit, with some members of the CERT team that I trained here in Friburgo, was primarily so that we could take some photos that would help enhance further CERT training course.

I was amazed at the destruction that we encountered so close to the city centre.
