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.

Uruguay fallen treesAbout five blocks from my place there is a wood of eucaliptus, that covers one full block and has survived urbanization in the area, It was cool. This are post storm pictures of my neighborhood's wood. I used to play there when I was a kid. Very sad sight.

Hi gabo,

Could you tell us how Uruguay has moved on after the storm?
Were infrastructures put in place to better deal with this sort of storm in the future?

Thanks for this blog,I have been interested in Uruguay for some time and it is very informative

The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought you have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
