O Salgado Filho International Airportin Porto Alegre, is one of the facilities that remained underwater after the intense storms in Rio Grande do Sul. Of the three floors of the building, only the ground floor was affected, however, the damage is extensive.

The consequences of the water impact were shown in this Sunday’s edition, 12th, of Fantastic from TV Globo. The flood went over the detention basin system and hit telephone cables, internet and equipment. In the parking lot, there are dozens of cars, which are not floating due to lack of internal air, many with their trunks open.

All large planes were removed from the runway, an operation carried out in a hurry and the runway became a real lake. The images are impressive. According to reporter Pedro Vedova, who went to the scene, there are dead animals and plastic debris in the lobby.

O last flight registered from the airport went to Congonhas Airport, in São Paulo, at 8:10 pm on May 3rd.

In the program, civil engineer Luiz Afonso states that all systems are absolutely damaged. “This means that the time needed to fully recover the operation of Salgado Filho Airport should be a few months,” he said.

Until activities resume, the Federal Police have provided security and remain on site. Night patrolling, with night vision goggles, with your own boats and equipment, okay? Laser sight and others. They are policing the most sensitive and most conflict-ridden regions, patrolling the perimeter and inside the airport”, says Aldronei Rodrigues, regional superintendent of PF-RS.
