Speaking of Wuzhou, if Wuzhou was broadcasted on CCTV, it must be of flood.
It’s not a problem to find one from Wuzhou to talk on and on about flood. Wuzhou is the confluence of three rivers,
The water in Gui River and Xi River will rise rapidly when downpouring in summer.
There will be a big flood every few years.
I remenber the flood in June 19, 1994. I lived in the west of Gui River which there was no levees at that time.
I got up in the morning of June 17 and I look out of the window. Wow!
I didn’t know what happened that the water was everywhere in the street. I was 6 and I was only a child,
I hadn’t been seen such a big scene. I learned that there was a flood when my parents told me.
The water rose to 2 floor only in a morning time. The ammeter in the corridor must be unloaded and we had a power cut.
Nothing can scare me except for a power cut.
And we lived in 3 floor, So my parants intended to take me to my uncle’s home on the Zhu Hill.
We had to go out by boat since the flood,
We called a boat and embarked.
The boat was sinking when we were embarking.
I fell into the water and I couldn’t swim, I was really scared driven to distraction.
Fortunately, the owner of the boat saved me and I survived. It was so dangerous at that time.
And then we called a larger boat, but I feared to embark because of falling into the water only a moment ago.
I had forgotten how I embarked that boat.
The boat set off, but the boat was dangling, I was so scared.
strangely, till that flood, I had been
having a fever, however, even though I fell into the water and lost the pills,
my fever was gone. what a miracle.
since then, on june 28th in 1998 and june 23rd in 2005, there were two floods in Wuzhou
that were even more serious than this time on June 19th.
