Brazil World Cup 2014: Part of Manaus airport’s roof collapses under heavy rain

August 12, 2019


As Brazil prepares to host the World Cup in
just a matter of weeks, part of the airport roof in the host city of Manaus has collapsed. The roof caved in after heavy rains and, while
Manaus airport is expected to welcome thousands next month, the car park, parts of the arrival
and departure lounges are flooded. Inspections to recent renovations detected
flaws in the construction that affected part of the lobby, but locals say the construction
was ill planned. You get completely soaked, there is no way
for the water to escape anywhere. All the overflow channels are at the edge. What kind
of professional plans are like this? Brazil’s World Cup preparations have faced
serious delays and several stadiums are still-incomplete. But, with games starting on June 12th, the country
is running out of time.
