Title: FLOOD!
Post by: frodomyhero on April 03, 2005, 10:20:42 am

OMG :o Our neighbors house is in the river ! We've had turrential rains and our neighbors house is under water and the rapids are so loud and we are watching the water very carefully... It is so scary and I feel so sorry for them.... another neighbor down the street has lost their barn.... it's down river inbetween trees... and the river hasn't crested yet . The horses up the street are running all around the field because they are so worried.. I am too. I hope my house isn't next.. We are up higher but someone told me the water will be rising another 5 to 6 feet... it will cover our road... We might be trapped here all night.. I so hope and pray we don't get flooded.
My friend I called who lives near a waterfall and she said her bridge is out and their out buildings are underwater ... it's so bad here... The rain keeps falling... ??? :'(

Frodomyhero- I hope you'll be okay. Floods are scary. Our creek behind our house has risen dangerously close to us before. I can't imagine losing my house to a flood! What a mess! I'll pray for you.

Frodomyhero, I'm so sorry about the flooding, I hope that the rain will stop soon and that your house won't be affected. I know how scary this is, our cellar (when we lived in a flat in germany) was once flooded and a fire started because our neighbours had a fridge down there among other things. I hope that things will turn out well and that your neighbours can save what they hold dear. Here in England, we are not far from the river Severn which tends to rise quite high and the people living near it always have trouble when it rains a lot. I'm thinking of you. :-*

The water is receeding... TG
My neighbors house ..the main part.. has been spared by the flood.. but the lower part is totaled.
My other neighbor's barn is gone but his house was spared also...The water was right up to his front door but didn't go any higher.... two out of the three roads we use are flooded... so at least we have a way out.. so many people's houses are flooded around here.. It's devastating.. I've never seen anything like this since I've been here...
Luckily we were spared. I got some photos but I don't know how to put them on this site.
Anyone?

That's lucky that the water is receeding! Glad you're ok:)

There's an explanation of how to post photos in the FAQ, hope that helps!

thanks alot CarinalLady... I am so thankful we are not in that turrential current from the river... we have to worry about the run off BEHIND our house now... not the river IN FRONT because the runoff is all around our house but it hasn't come up to our house... There's water all around... ???

Thank you so much.
Today we had no school .The buses couldn't get through . Two of the three roads we use to get out of the valley were closed. TG one was open. Today when I got up the water was down by 10 feet! but the mud and mess is all around! They didn't even talk about it on the news ...I couldn't believe it.!
Our water has been affected .. but our house has beenn spared. My neighbors were not so lucky. Two had their land cut through by the water and their yards are a mess. The water is still up and the current is intense still. But the mud on the roads and the roads are cut into by the water. yesterday we were on a highway that had water right up to it on BOTH sides...it was so surreal..

Well, I am glad that things seem to have passed the crest. Of course there will be a lot of cleanup and a lot of heartache for those with a lot of property damage. But, hopefully the worst has passed. Take care.

Well my backyard is still under water.. but it's been sunny and we will need a backhoe type person to come in and do drainage in July when hopefully this will dry out but wow we will have mosquito haven this spring UGH!! No water in our basement though... Many roads are out and trees and cars are in the river by us. My poor neighbor has the river cut into his property... I don't know what he is going to do.. My other neighbors dog made it though.. that dog is amazing...
Bridges are out and the govenor is trying to declare us in a state of emergency... so many people are filled with mud and depris in their houses and yards .. it's disquisting... a lot of clean up is going on now. Trees are floating in the river all over the place... One woman was killed.
