I've let water out of the pool twice but there is no where to discharge it because everything is so saturated. The water in the pool is from rainwater, no flooding yet. The gutters we put up in the front can't handle it and they overflow. So far though, the house is in good condition and no leaks anywhere. Cement houses are notorious for water infiltration especially those with flat roofs.
We had an apartment building in town have a semi-collapse when a giant boulder came down in a mudslide and hit the third story sending a sleeping woman down into the apartment below. She is in the hospital but with minor injuries.
Out here I went up to the corner for the paper, our road is still open but the dry river bed is at about a half meter right now. They say this is going to hit around 5 p.m. this afternoon and it appears it is wreaking havoc in the south of the country.
