The fires continue to burn, and the situation has worsened above Sao Roque with the fire gaining strength again. I don’t know if the winds are still strong, if they are then there could be many problems during the night. Around 10 homes have been affected by fire now in the Sao Roque area.
Thoughts with everyone involved and please stay safe.

The airport has also had many problems today with the wind, and has been closed this evening for a while. Thousands of passengers are stuck in the airport inside and outside, and I guess with it being August, hotel space is limited, so they probably will spend the night there.
