Poza Honda/Manabi/Ecuador — With a meter of water over the dam, four inches of rainfall sent Poza Honda’s waters rising another meter. Not only did Wednesday night’s rainfall send floodwaters downstream, it also sent another mass of water hyacinths downriver as well.
Several landslides blocked the road on the far side of the dam, but that was a very minor annoyance compared to what the folks downriver are experiencing.
If this weather pattern continues, and the flooding makes international news, remember that the little neighborhood where I live is fine.
I’ll be off line until Tuesday, weather permitting!
Have a good weekend!
