During last year's drought, the waters of the Negro River reached this area. Today, the region is completely dry, the ground is full of cracks and houses are isolated. Around sixty families live in the community, which is made up of floating houses that have run aground because of the river drought in Amazonas. Many looked after boats and depended on fishing to survive. According to the Amazonas Civil Defence, forty-two cities are in an emergency situation and almost three hundred thousand people have been affected.
