In some areas of my place flood water is a frequent problem.This is due to our place is below sea level.The other problem is bad garbage disposal that almost everyone just throw their rubish anywhere they like.Even a short rain shower some areas are already submerged by dirty floods.How much more if it really had a typhoon rain!The floods are really treatening many individuals who has houses built in the swamp areas and shanties along the river banks.The floods are very high that it could already anybody who tries to pass through it because the waters are more than the height of a man.The local government are making a quick possible solutions to the problem so that the floodings could be minimized when it is coming.How about you guys?How deep are your flash floods in your areas?

In my area it is not so bad. I see others who have to leave their houses though.

I think they felt the danger if they do not vacate their houses.I believe in the magic of emotional thinking what could become of you in the next few minutes and with this floods coming out of your area is a menace to your life--then you must get out and safe your life.
