Storm waves damaged several buildings in Rio de Janeiro.
The main ramp of yacht berth Marina da Gloria, which is the sailing venue of the Rio games, collapsed partially on Saturday owing to the strong waves from the sea. This is a building for sailing races. Besides, the buildings of TV studios of Copacabana beach are also damaged - they were planned to broadcast the Olympics. Workers remove the damage and strengthen the coast, fences from the waves are being installed.
Meanwhile, the Rio Olympic Park is finishing their final preparations for the Summer Games. Preparatory works are behind the schedule due to funding problems and the strongest political crisis over past few decades. The new section of the subway was opened only on Saturday. Organizers assure that everything will be ready at the opening.
Thousands of foreign tourists are already arriving at the city - the number of holiday-makers on Rio beaches has increased significantly. They weren't frightened neither by Zika virus spread, no by the organizational difficulties in Brazil. As it was reported earlier, Summer Olympics begin in Brazil this week - on Friday, the 5th of August.
