Flood relief

It rained pretty hard again last night, but now it's clear and fairly bright, so hopefully the water will keep going down. Here's a couple more pictures from yesterday:

The governmental flood post near the market was getting a banner yesterday. As soon as a disaster happens, even if it's far away like the earthquake in Yogya, aid posts spring up all over the place to collect donations and deliver assistance.

Besides getting people and belongings out, rafts are being used to bring supplies to those sheltering on the upper floors of flooded houses.
