Brazil’s tallest building rocks from side to side in storm

  • Eerie footage shows water spilling out of a jacuzzi in Brazil’s tallest building
  • The huge Millennium Palace rocks, causing water to splosh out onto the floor
  • Terrified camerawoman can be heard exclaiming as waves crash over the edge

This is the terrifying moment water from a jacuzzi spills out onto the floor as ferocious winds rock Brazil’s tallest building from side to side in strong winds.

Eerie footage shows the tub overflowing at the luxury Millennium Palace in the southern Brazilian resort city of Balneário Camboriú in Santa Catarina.

Lights can be seen flickering in the short video, filmed by a resident in the 580-foot-high building, as swathes of water slosh onto the luxury apartment’s wooden floor.

The camerawoman can be heard repeatedly saying ‘apagão’ – the Portuguese term for ‘blackout’.

A towel can be seen lying beside the tub, seemingly used in a fruitless attempt to mop up the endless water spilling over the edge.

‘Ooooh! Meu Jesus!’ exclaims the woman as a particularly strong wave breaks onto the floor.

Water hits the tall windows surrounding one side of the tub as it slowly covers the apartment.

Gurgling and rumbling can be heard during the horrifying commotion. 

The viral clip has been viewed more than 45,000 since being posted online on Wednesday.
