Floods in Mauritius

Post by Chitra on Sat 29 Mar 2008 - 20:21

Hey guys,

I wanna hear your views and experiences about last wednesday's floods in Mauritius.

As for my experience, well I spent nearly one hour trying to prevent water from getting into my house owing to the torrential rains which were non-stop.

I was totally drenched from head to toe, as I took a "pioche" n tried to channel the water to other path ways. My dad and bro were not at home at that time. I thought I'll try to apply my engineering knowledge in doing that but in vain. Pfffff...

What about you guys? How did it go?

WOW! That was the heaviest torrential rain which I ever saw in my entire existence and never ever my environment was flooded with about 80 cm of water. On Wednesday, 3 cm more and my house would have been affected. Here are some pictures of the floods at my place and my neighbourhood...


Picture 1


Picture 2


Picture 3


Picture 4

As you can see, the water didn't spare a single area at my place but fortunately the water level went down pretty quickly. However, the main road in my village turned into a dangerous and fast flowing river for at least 2 days. Some people were even taken away by the phenomenal power of the water flow.

Today, one week after the torrential rain, water is still on the roads in some places in my neigbourhood and I should say that in the 24 years of my existence I never saw such a disaster.

By the way Chitra, how can chemical engineering help in floods? scratch

Wow kumca delo la hein...what I meant by engineering was that I did a module called Fluid Mechanics some time back. I was trying to apply some of its principles but in vain...Kot moi pa ti kumca selement meme pas dan grande route, aparte bane drain ki ti overflow. Par contre, kot mo kuzin Mon-gout, sa zot koner kine arriver. Mo kuzin so lacaz pres kot sa lariviere la meme.

Kavi, in our yards the water only raised to a maximum of 25 cm and as I said earlier, the water level went down pretty quickly. So, I couldn't get any picture.
