With no tv reports to follow we were a little in the dark about our situation but luckily Danay has a radio which is solar and wind-up powered so we could get some updates.
Wednesday turned out to be one of the hottest and sunniest days we had had in about two weeks but other than being good for the radio this wasn't very comforting. Overnight the water had risen dramatically and the level was still climbing throughout the day. One of the city's major routes; Coronation Drive was cut off in several places and slowly we became an island on our little hill as our neighbours go under.

Having seen what happened on Wednesday we fear Thursday's devastation.
