Not Really Sailing Related but WOW!

Here is a port collapsing into the water! Wow!

Landslide devastates Manaus port - Cargo Systems -

"When in command, command." -- Admiral Nimitz

Difference between a power boater and a sailor out on the water: A power boater is going some place special, a sailor is already there.

Wow is right...

I wonder if that kind of thing ever happens along non-developed riverbank?

As in, "I think we'll just head up that river a little bit and anchor near the bank. It'll be great."
