As you probably know, we had a good sized flood in September after the hurricane. Actually, it was a double whammy. Indiana got dumped on by two different storms, back-to-back. I think we had something like 8 or 9 inches of rain on each of two consecutive days. The seminary was turned into an evacuation center, with people staying there for two nights. I helped out by staying up on the second night along with Aaron V. and Yevgeni K.
So here's (finally) some pictures of the flood. None of these are my pictures... I kept forgetting my camera and wishing I had taken it along.
This past Saturday, I took a break from my studies and helped out one of the relief teams from Oak Glen URC. We spent the whole morning on this house. There was a lot of stuff in the basement that was ruined, as you can see. The man from the house called it the "Wailing Wall". Apparently, this was a quite a common sight all along the flooded streets!
