Devastating flooding in Brazil, too
June 24, 2010
On top of the terrible flooding that's occurred in Iowa
over the last few days, we've heard terrible stories of flooding displacing thousands of people in China
as well, and now we're finding out about almost 100,000 people being left homeless in Brazil
, along with dozens of deaths and at least a thousand people missing. Every one of those stories is a heartbreak. We can only hope that the painful losses lead to a rededication of efforts to better manage stormwater
-- and to make the necessary investments to ensure sustainable protection of the land and waterways in order to protect human life.
