Traveling On Thanksgiving Day
Traveling to Thanksgiving dinner, we got to about the center of the city and then the rain got heavier and our driver began to talk. According to him 100 people in the south of the city had died in this storm. The center of the cyclone was south of the city and 200 more people died there. The newspapers did not have these numbers, but we were told later in the day that the drivers know more than the media. Days after the storm we talked to new friends and learned what their challenges had been. Our regular driver did not come for us because he had three feet of water in his house. The driver who did come for us had suffered the same problem but his house had been pumped. The men coming to pump were charging triple the regular price. Many people in the flood were killed because as the water came no one turned off the electricity.
