This Tuesday, december 2 was the worst day for the village of Portela since the beginning of the eruption of Fogo.

The roller of lava a'a advance inexorably : in one day, 37 houses were destroyed in the sight of desperate people, bringing the total to 57. The lava swallowed primary school, and the hotel Pedra Brabo. The infrastructure is destroyed, including 51 tanks, and 30 hectares of land covered by lava.
