On June 15, 2014, two days of near non-stop rain have dumped a month’s worth of precipitation on the World Cup city of Natal, leading to a flood and sinkhole alerts. This was also witnessed in Iguazu Falls this month.

These floods created a sinkhole, which grew larger after heavy rains on June 20, 2014. Now, residents watch in fear as homes tumbled into the hole.

Floods can often be deadly in Brazil, where intense rains, chaotic urban planning and garbage-filled drainage pipes sometimes result in landslides that bury entire neighborhoods. Poor neighborhoods, often built up steep hillsides, tend to be hit worst by such flooding.
