We had bad flooding last week. The river that runs through the city centre didn't actually burst its banks, but one did crack and shift, causing a bad crack in the sidewalk along it. It's the way I usually walk to work, but now it's all taped off with police tape, so I can't take a photo of it. But last Friday I saw surveyors at work, and they were there again this morning. It's going to be a pretty major job, I should think!
I guess I could equally well have posted this as newsworthy! We had a whole month's worth of rain in one day, and there were some amazing videos on YouTube of buses with water up to peoples ankles, and water pouring down the stairs in a big trendy shopping mall. Photo-worthy or not I'm glad I was safe at home.
