The interior of the store was completely destroyed by the force of the waters. In addition to a lot of mud, it is possible to see that a tree fell on the structure and invaded the unit. There is rubble scattered across the floor. The merchandise was also swept away by the flood and left lying in the middle of the earth and water.

At the time, the company’s owner, Luciano Hang, stated that he would not fire employees from the destroyed unit.

The city of Lajeado is in the Taquari Valley, one of the regions of the state most affected by the storms. According to Civil Defense, the municipality had two confirmed deaths.
