Hi guys! Unfortunately strong storms again affected my city. At this moment the good side is that I have electricity and internet, I don't have a car and I live in an department so I'm ok but this pics are very close to my home. (some ones are 10 blocks from here).

Glad you are ok. Is this just a bad year, or does flooding like that happen often there? How long did it take to get like that?

That's awful, man. Have you got some food supplies to keep you going, or are there places that are still unaffected?

Wow. Bad news. Is that the result of Rio de la Plata flooding? I know that Buenos Aires is at the mouth of this big river and kind of flat (not mountainous). Let's see, in April, you're heading into the fall in South America right? ... our weather here in the US is just getting better, and you guys down there must be moving towards winter.
I hope that you and your family are safe and that the waters subside soon.

The problem is the weather changes. We were not used to have this type or rains so our drain isn't prepared for this quantity of water in such a short period of time. In the last years the weather is to what it was in more tropical countries like Brazil where you have very hot days but also very strong and frequent storms and rains.

The pics are from the most affected parts. There are parts, like around that weren't looking like Venecia. As the rains stopped a bit, the streets can be transited now.

No, the problem is basically bad storm sewer. Yes, it's autumn now here, and we are moving to Winter. So let's see what happens.
