“it’s like a dream”

A week after the rains that hit the city of Rio Largo, Maria Cícera Santos, 56, weeps at the memory of the flood that destroyed her home. “It’s like a dream. A terrible dream that never ends” says, on June, 2010 in Rio Largo, Alagoas state, Brazil. Around 150 thousand people were displaced after heavy rains and flash floods hit the Brazilian northeastern states of Pernambuco and Alagoas.  (Photo by Lunae Parracho/Getty Images)
