It may be an object of curiosity for tourists, but yesterday’s landslide could have had serious repercussions.
Today, however, a large scale clear-up operation is in force by several entities on the escarpment next to the Orca Praia Hotel, with the work being overseen by the Regional Civil Protection Service.
With the climatic changes we have had this year, from blistering heat, sudden rains and twelve minor earthquakes this month, let alone since June, it is not surprising that the land has shifted, resulting in a landslide.
We are just so lucky that no one was badly hurt.
