Nobody was prepared.

I've spoken to many people and it confirms what the Jamaican news has been saying all along. Nobody was prepared for this much rain and this type of water hasn't been seen around here for over 20 years. The guy at the gas station has spoken to many people who lost property or had no clue it would get this bad this quick. The water was only up a couple inches when we went to bed Monday night, and rose to 16" on this property overnight, and had receded to only 4-5 inches by morning. Still cleaning up some of the mess. The shop will be a big challenge to clean, but many hands make light work. The laundry will take a few days to catch up on. .
