Ponta Delgada cemetery wall collapsed

It is another problem to add to many that happened this afternoon in Ponta Delgada. One of the support walls of the parish cemetery could not stand the pressure as a result of the accumulation of water that flooded the space and there is a risk of further flooding.

The municipality’s source confirmed the collapse of the wall located to the north, which faces the access ramp to the local port, however he stressed that only tomorrow, with the break of day, a more thorough assessment will be made of the old construction, which therefore itself raises an added concern.

For now, it is known that some ornaments of the graves of the dead disappeared due to the strength and the large amount of water that freely flowed down the street entering directly to the cemetery becoming an authentic swimming pool as we realized here.
