Twenty-five years ago, on October 29, 1993, Funchal woke up to this disaster that so many will remember. 

Torrential rains that occurred during the night caused landslides and the streams, strangled, could not drain the waters.

8 people died, 100 homes were destroyed and 220 cars were swept away by the torrent. Taken from Funchal News.
