Looking for shelter

Interview with Frederico Rudorff, geographer, June 2013, Florianopolis

We didn’t actually planned anything in case things got really bad, where would we go to get protection. When the winds were starting I was actually looking for the tape to measure the beach. It was crazy because we should be looking for shelter. I mean, the phone that we were calling from, to the civil defense and EPAGRI, that was fixed on the floor… it had disappeared! It was like a serious risk of dying, but I mean anything that could… all the risk taken at that time… It may be fool to do this again, we would look for more safety, but at that time…
–Now you have the experience that you didn’t have before
–Yes, we knew it was very helpful, but it was a high hazard, as you said, it was a first experience.
