When large swathes of formerly anglo or mexican-american neighborhoods become inhabited by large quantities of roaming chuntaros. Urban blight with an accent. After a chuntnami makes landfall, former malls become "El Swami" (Swap Meet), stately movie palaces become evangelical churches and former bank buildings transform into taquerias or mores swamis and tacky murals defaced by graffiti adorn the walls of marketas.
Man did you ever see pictures of downtown Los Angeles before the chuntnami hit it? It used to be a classy place!
