Toxic Mudslide in Brazil

In the South American country of Brazil, work is underway to reduce the environmental impact from a mudslide that's now spilling into the sea. This is happening in the state of Espirito Santo.

Hundreds of people were displaced when two dams burst at an iron ore mine in the state of Minas Gerais. That was more than two weeks ago.

The mud traveled hundreds of miles down the river Doce, reaching the Atlantic Ocean at Espirito Santo state over the weekend.
