Rain Damage

Rain Damage

While I was in the bus this afternoon, my mom called me all panicked saying "OMG, there is a huge flood, the town is drowning. People are canoeing down the streets !!!". I was like, "nah, she's exagerating, it's impossible." Well, it appears I was wrong, it is possible to flood a town in less than a day.

Crécy-la-Chapelle, my town, is suffering from "rain damage". The river overflow. Every public places have been closed down, restaurants and shops as well. A couple of friends and their kid are staying at my house for the night because the police has evacuated my village (over 50 people). The cars are upside down, totally unfixable, water has infiltrated each house and you now have to take a boat to get through the main streets.

We had never experience such a disaster here (since 1988 or something like this). Fortunately, my house is on top of a hill so the flood didn't get us. I'm deeply sorry for those who were touch by this catastrophe.

The "fun" in our trouble (if there is a fun part) is, Crécy-la-Chapelle's nickname is "La Venise Briarde" which means the Venise of the Brie (just because a river cross the city from the inside). Well, know this nickname really does apply quiet well on the situation.

It's still raining and the weather won't change until Monday. I guess, we'll have to open a seaside resort. I've hear a rumor saying every century or so, there is supposed to be a huge flood... maybe that's it!

Crécy en force contre la pluie !

Flood damage has increased in the United States. Heavy storms at overnight resulting in reports of cars being stranded on flooded roads, homes catching fire after lightning strikes, structural damage to bridge.

The weather is a mess everywhere. It's really sad that nobody can agree on actual mesures to take to restore the damage men have brought on earth. Even during the COP 21 (world climate conference which happened last year in Paris), didn't really worked out. More than a hundred nations were supposed to find some solutions to limit the rise in temperture.
