After 45 minutes or an hour of raining, some of the streets cannot handle the influx of water and they start flooding. Shops had sandbags around their doors and walls they were bailing water out with buckets. I'm told if it rains for 3 hours the streets are not negotiable. If the rain comes down for a day or 36 hours there will be 6 feet of rushing water.
Water can be a blessing or a curse.
The kids loved splashing snd swimming about in the pools created.
