After a rainy season that caused some of the worst flooding in recent history the seasonal drought that followed is proving to be especially bad as well in the area of the Parana de Manaquiri River, a tributary of the Amazon, near the city of Manaquiri, Brazil.
Residents say natural disasters like this have happened every year since 2005, but many are still surprised by the magnitude of this year drought that has caused the death of tens of thousands fish, but also alligator and many other aquatic animals.
This mass death has caused a contamination of the water leaving thousands of people without a water supply. Some parts of the river dried up completely, forcing a state of emergency declaration and the cancelation of classes for 2,500 children who depend on boats to reach schools. Experts blame high temperatures and low water levels for the large scale of fish deaths. They say water levels will only return to normal in January, when the next flooding period begins.

    Even the catfishes seem to be afraid (look at their eyes!).
