Catastrophe - WATCH THESE VIDEOS - help

Journal Entry: Tue May 17, 2011, 11:20 AM
PEOPLE, PLEASE WATCH THIS! They're short but THEY SHOW THE REALITY! We need help!

This is Barranquilla, a city from Atlántico, Colombia.

Also, two houses near mine are about to collapse due to landslides. They're my neighbours... :'(
Thanks to Laal for the links of the videos. She lives in Barranquilla :hug:


EDIT 2: Streets are okay (have been for some time, but I forgot to let you know). Also, the classrooms have ceiling again Yay! Everything is "okay" for now, at least in my city. But it keeps raining and the states are still flooded and the families homeless. Thanks everybody for your support and encouraging and caring comments! You're amazing! :hug: KEEP SPREADING THE WORD! (edit 2 over)

EDIT: The streets near my house collapsed: one was covered by a brook that grew because of the rain. The other one was blocked by a landslide. I'm kinda trapped now... haha... ha... h... Help would be really appreciated (that is, spreading the word and letting people know). Thanks for caring! EDIT OVER.

Oookay, I'm going to rant about me and the weather in my devastated country...


I live in Colombia. It's not as popular as Japan, as you guys may notice, but it has indeed a lot of trouble too. 28 (out of 32) states are flooded because of constant rain since ~september last year, people suffer from hunger and cold, and die buried because of landslides, the government has not enough money and people living in risk zones (like me) can't go anywhere.
3'000.000 people lost their homes and family.
The houses and streets near my school disappeared in a landslide last year, so it's very difficult to access there. Now, my classrooms are starting to fall apart.
Today, we had to have class in the cafeteria because our classroom's ceiling just fell. I think I make my point clear, don't I?

And it keeps raining.
Last week we had no water or internet, and power failed too. Not all the time, but water went away for two days or so, and so did internet, and power failed in the night. Thank you, rain.

Keep hanging in there! I'm from the Caribbean, and it's been raining a lot too. Not as bad as you and even though it does flood, not as bad as THAT.

Yo ahora estoy en Bogotá, pero soy de Santa Marta, y se como la lluvia causa estragos... He estado sin luz, sin agua y sin internet cuando llueve, y he perdido muchas de mis pertenencias por culpa de la bendita lluvia.

Vi en el journal de *Felsus sobre un artbook... Cómo es eso? owo

Espantoso. :o

My only concern is whether the Colombian government will be of any help or not. It's bad enough that the Japanese government hides the truth about how bad the radioactivity is from the nuclear power plant. Yes, we must spread the word because the ruling elite will not care about the people. I don't know how to say this without sound too preachy about my views on economics but the government only seems to care about profits.

I sympathize with you that you had to have class in the cafeteria. I do not know how often it rains over there but if there was something that is durable enough to resist the strength of the water, perhaps the building would be stable.

Tengan cuidado. World seems dangerous these days. :meow:

it has rained daily over the winter. Lately, it has only rained on afternoon and night. But still... it's not only the classrooms (whichgot hit by a strong storm), it's my neighbour's house that almost fell off D8;;;

I think most tructures (like, well built structures) are likely to resist. It's the soil that's falling apart ;____;

the world's endinnngggg *runs in circles*

Me parece tan desgarradora la situación actual de nuestro pais, es increible como las cosas han ido empeorando hasta ahora, siempre se escucha de algun nuevo departamento con problemas de inundaciones y duele verlo, más aun cuando apenas llevamos unos pocos años disfrutando que de alguna manera la violencia (por la guerrilla y la farc) disminuyo notablemente.
Pude ver en persona la situaciòn en Atlantico cuendo viajé por una practica de la universidad a Cartagena, al lado y lado de la carretera estaba todo inundado, y vi escenas demasiado tristes aun para mencionar. En mi municipio no ha ocurrido nada de esto pero me siento impotente por todas esas familias que lo perdieron todo.

Igual yo. En un viaje que hice el semestre pasado pude ver todo inundado a los costados de las carreteras. Tierras que antes eran fértiles o habían servido para ganadería completamente inservibles. Es triste...

Me gustaría poder hacer más

I was there in Baraquilla just last summer D: I even remeber that place (the third video)
Is Santa Marta having trouble too? Cause My dad said their one of the main places with the worst flood. We also visited Santa Marta, when it rained for half the day all the streets were flooded it also didn't help that it was right at the bottem of the Sierra Nevada. the water was up to my theighs! Once again; Please stay safe!!!

Well, I'm not sure if it's as bad as last year (the news system sucks here, we never get to know anything, they don't pay attention anymore) but I hope it's not too bad!
I live in a higher zone: therefore, instead of floodings we get landslides. I'm living in unstable soil, but luckily it will stay where it is till the rain season is over. :')
