After the storm

<<previous next>>
Uruguay wood after the storm
The 26th of august Uruguay went through the worst storm in it's history. There were winds of about 160km/hour. 7 men died, around 50 injured. This is not normal in this part of the world, here we dont have hurricanes, we are not prepared for this type of thing. There were lots of families without electricity or water for a couple of days. I've friend who took showers on cold water for a week.

An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
