Natural disasters in Brazil

For the Natural disasters presentation the country I chose Brazil because it is a somewhat poor country and it’s next to the ocean where there are usually tsunamis and hurricanes.


The structures in Brazil are used to rain so I think they have to have a good roof. Also, about once every 30 – 50 years there is a tsunami there And sometimes there are hurricanes.


The houses in brazil are usually built with straw and timber which can keep out rain but don’t do much good against hurricanes or tsunamis.

  1. I always learn something when I read your work, Eliezer. Really interesting picture of the straw, timber house. I’ve never seen one like that. Wonder what it would be like to live in it?
