It is one thing to "see" a large-scale natural disaster on TV. It is far more shocking to come upon one unexpectedly, in real life. Everyone on Ilha Grande is shaken, and feels very puny before Nature right now.

Some time back we had a slide that buried a truck along with its driver and closed the highway into town for many days. They hauled the slide dirt off and also cut into the hill side enough to build 10 miles of highway. Canīt really see that they have made a dent in the slide area.
