Kudjip had a similar freak kind of a storm last week Wednesday. Although in the Southern hemisphere we actually call them "cyclones" instead of "hurricanes." At first it seemed like your normal rainy season afternoon rain. But the clouds got darker and the winds picked up. Rain started to come down strong and go horizontal. I was just getting off from work at the hospital, so I stepped into B-ward for a bit of shelter. A lot of good that did me. The ward was already flooded and the patients soaked to their bones. Hospital staff and watchman attempted to close the windows, but the rain kept on coming in anyways.
Over the past few days, maintenance has been cleaning up the mess and putting things back together--branches picked up, trees cut, roads cleared. Power lines have been re-attached, and electricity lights up the station once again. Our end was just about the last bit to have the power restored--we went without for about 52 hours. Thank the Lord for Jordan and Noli and the awesome team of maintenance guys!
Here is a link to Dr. Erin's blog and pictures of the Kudjip storm.
