ok lol this is fkd up, why do they have to wear gas masks and shiny suits if it's supposed to be an "earthquake drill" or something like that, even
when there is no fire or dust? and washing.. people?
All government forces when in it for it, even CTI wich is Cuerpo Tecnico de Investigacion, like some sort of Colombian FBI.
My british roommate said there was some fake riot down my building and it was about some people protesting against the American government, and
throwing rocks to the Colombian government lol wtf.. I havent found pics of that one, he didnt take any but i will keep checking newspapers!
They did not shut down cellphones, probably cuz the phone company would sue them
And one weird thing that happened is that in Medellin, another city (remembered by many people cuz it was pablo escobar's town), they did the same
BUT THEY DID NOT WARN PEOPLE!!! So even some of the rescue workers here in Bogota, had to leave to Medellin in a hurry to rescue people, they didnt
know either!!! jeez
Silver uniform people (firemen i guess) doing somehting on a kinda-destroyed plane
Gas mask people with some anti-explosive forces guy (green)
Ok planning is good, i guess.
I couldnt tell u what these green dudes do, there is a firetruck on the back but there were firetrucks everywhere anyway
school demolished for the event, as u can see there is this machine to create electricity using gas.
They wre also testing how to take people out of high buildings in downtown
shelter built in a huge park (some sort of central park we have) after the alarms went off
this is at the international el dorado airport
There were rescue workers from many countries, including the US, Honduras, Brazil
(in the picture) Japan, etc.
another destroyed building
The Mayor (Using the microphone) had some sort of special place to watch one of the most destroyed areas and was probably giving a conference.
utilities are back on already, seems to be that people are just too lazy to follow government rules
