Floods ...

We have had days and days of rain. On Tuesday, it rained so long and so hard, we got flooding. Flooding and flood-related damage so bad that, according to news reports, at least 13 people died.

At my office, we sent all non-essential staff home. Some of the essentials spent the nght at hotels or guest houses.

I was lucky. The roads to and from work were pretty dry. So, no problem for me. But one of my co-workers had the most amazing mobile phone video of flooding in her area: floating cars and people wading waist-deep in water.

THIS was the monsoon I'd been expecting back in June and July. I'm told the rains are falling later this year than they have previously.

Most of the flooding was due to lake breaches, and overflowing/blocked storm-water drains.
