Brazil: The BHP dam failure

According to latest reports, at least 15 people are dead due to a dam failure at the BHP/Vale JV Germano iron ore mine in Brazil. Today’s big news from this neck of the woods is not good news.

PS: Holy crap. Imagine that wave hitting your town.

UPDATE: Here’s footage of the disaster zone (shot from a drone and then a helicopter, it seems). This is highly unfunny for the locals, for the companies and for the mining industry as a whole.
