As we were walking around in this old growth rain forest, there were a huge number of trees that had been blown down relatively recently. The damage was caused by a severe wind storm after the ground had become fully saturated. The juxtaposition of the new windfall over the older fallen trees demonstrates that this type of event happens on a regular basis. We were glad that we did not experience this extreme weather event first hand.
