November 8-án egy hatszáz fős falut teljesen elsodort a több millió köbméter iszap, amikor Brazíliában átszakadt egy zagytározó gátja. A délkelet-brazíliai Bento Rodrigues településre zúdult  a sárlavina, amelyet a helyi vasércbánya átszakadt gátjai okozott. A katasztrófában tizenöten meghaltak. Az iszapszennyezés egy része a Doce-folyóba ömlött, ami tovább szállította az iszapot az Atlanti-óceánhoz.

A dam burst at a mining waste site unleashing a deluge of thick, red toxic mud that smothered a village killing at least 17 people and injuring some 75. The mining company Samarco, which operates the site, is jointly owned by two mining giants, Vale of Brazil and BHP Billiton of Australia.  AFP PHOTO /  CHRISTOPHE SIMON / AFP / CHRISTOPHE SIMON

A 60 millió köbméter iszap két hét alatt ért az Atlanti-óceánhoz. A sár többféle mérgező anyagot is tartalmaz, melynek koncentrációja meghaladja a határértékeket. A szakértők további komoly szennyezésre számítanak az iszap óceánba folyásával.
