Russian Hydro dam blows up

Back on August 17th, the Sayano-Shushenska Hydro Dam in Siberia suffered a major accident, which cost at least 74 people their lives. It was not well reported in the press, certainly I didn’t see any pictures.

Now the Boston Globe has put together a major photo essay with amazing shots of the damage suffered, both in terms of human and material losses. Something worthwhile seeing. Time well wasted.

Reportedly it will take close to 880 million euros to fix.
