We were told to brace ourselves for more heavy rain this weekend.
Well, the rain finally arrived last night - it poured the whole night with disastrous consequences, including the death of a rescuer this morning.
The death toll before last nights floods stood at at least 38, and many more are expected to have lost their lives in the latest floods.
Our town has weathered three devastating floods in the last fifteen years (they call them 500 year floods supposedly because they, according to probabilities, will happen only once every 500 years), all from different unique storm circumstances, but after the first one, people have gotten a LOT more careful and alert, and the mortality rate improved drastically, with no one dragging their feet evacuation wise, and fewer getting caught in rapidly rising water or flash floods...
We also tend to spend a lot of time watching the skies...
The town came together to help those affected, and it made the community stronger...I know how hard clean-up and the aftermath is, but you can do it.... baby steps, baby steps... and make sure that you are up to date with your inoculations, especially tetanus... 3766 days ago
I do hope you and your extended family, and friends are OK Do you know if there's any danger around the CBC school area??? My Energy Buddy / BFF has just bought a house there - and is staying temporarily in Lyndhurst
