In Columbia there was a big flood. Some people had to evacuate. Part of the flood was in King’s Grant (where I live). It flooded in Lake Catherine, Cotton Hope, Forest Lake and many other places in Columbia. It flooded in backyards. It felt very bad.
People are moving out of their houses in Kings Grant. Everybody’s stuff got ruined. Some water got on top of houses. Cars went under water too. Water got in houses that were built like a year ago. Some yards just got built and they got ruined. People saw it on the news too. People had to get rescued by boats.
Now that the flood is over in some places, people can help by giving people that lost their stuff food, clothes and things like that.
This is the first time I have ever seen a flood. I had no idea that the water could be so powerful. It was a little scary when I had no water or electricity. I was happy when my grandfather BooBoo came to save me. He took me to his house with my mom and sister. On the way I saw fields that got flooded and rivers that went half way up trees.
I have never imagined our city like this.
But one day it will be fixed.
