Oil catastrophe NE Brazil - pls report affected beaches

Postby Toby » Wed Oct 09, 2019 8:34 am

Main Brazil season is about to start...I am getting many questions about the affected beaches.

Since I am not in Brazil currently, please contribute with your knowledge about affected beaches.

Thanks!

Heard from friends, they had oil in Cumbuco 3 weeks ago. And also yesterday.

A beach south of Fortaleza has lots of oil I saw in a news report.

Anyone else with updates ?

How odd.

I came home from Cumbuco on Sunday and never saw or heard anything about any oil. Neither in the Jeri-area the week before.

I saw a few small pieces on the sea side of the bar at Barra Nova when I was there 23 Sep - 1 October. They were really tiny bits and not many of them. Sadly there was tonnes of plastic everywhere :-(
