We had an unexpected flood rip through the middle of town here a few years ago. Huge portions of the state were underwater for the second year running. I'm never living in a house near a river or valley Terrible business, they leave marks that never go away, both figuratively and literally, and most of the water can't even be put to good use. Places here are already back in drought conditions again. At least you're okay, though; you seem to have a talent for narrowly avoiding disaster (amongst many other things).
It's really unfortunate that the people in that area had to endure such a sudden and deadly flood, it's one of the worst I've seen for a while now.
Geez, this is the second time in the past half year alone you've managed to avoid these large scale disasters, and thankfully, you're still safe after all that.
