When is the water going to stop?

Normally Colombia has some more rain than normal in September till November/December, but this year it is a LOT more than normal. Most days start out perfect with a bright blue sky and just a few clouds but in the afternoon or evening the faucet is turned on and the city is covered by water.

In Bogota we had some streets completely flooded already,inundacion

but especially in the Northern part of Colombia the damage and suffering has been a lot worse. The river Magdalena broke through dikes and left at least 50.000 people homeless, mainly in the city of Plato.

About 1.000.000 people are estimated to be homeless nation wide because of the flooding since September and 67 people were killed. Hopefully it will turn all back to normal soon.
