[Kiwozi: I started off providing various Video’s and Links to all sorts of Flood ” News ” ?? in this blog and then I stopped myself. Is this ” News ” ?, no, this is the mass destruction of people’s property, livelihood and tragically for a few, their very life. Do I really want to highlight all these disasters that for many have occurred for the second time in two years ? No, I’m not some out of town Reporter – I live here ! So I removed my original material.
Ninety percent of these pictures I personally stood with my toes in the muddy water and took myself. Note: For comparison purposes you can see some 2011 Pictures here and you may well recognize some of the same premises/locations all over again.
The Map below is informative to give some geographical appreciation of the vastness of flood waters.
Finally I wish to share a heart wrenching story concerning a Skipper, his family and his boat. They feature in this blog because I had personally made their acquaintance as neighbors of yacht Screensaver while berthed at Midtown Marina and because they were fellow Kiwis. Their sad story is here. ]
