Kuwait floods 2018

The floods of November 2018 will go down in history for sure. Two people died and numerous cars and houses were destroyed. Kuwait is a complete mess now and will those people who lost so much actually get any compensation? Now the roads are dry in some areas but there is no actual road any more. It's just loose gravel and sand now.

Here are some pictures of Fahaheel after the storm.

This is the entrance to Highway 30 which is closed so they can drain and clean the infamous Mangaf underpass that floods every year.

Avenues flooded from the storm last week:

The owner of my apartment was caught in the floods, he told me the Kuwaiti police wouldn't help him but some Indian guys did. They helped him move his car and gave him a change of clothes. The car is in the shop and will cost 500 KD to fix. The elevator in the house was flooded, I opened my bedroom door and stepped into the water pouring out of the top of the elevator. The tent on the room was lifted and slammed into the a/c units on the roof. I wonder if he should submit a damage claim to the Ministry. There's still more rain to come......
