photos - ravine damage - part 1

Naval is one of the students here at Coram Deo. He came to the house on Wednesday morning to tell me about what happened when the rains came through the ravine on Tuesday evening. A retaining wall from the property above fell on their neighbors house.

The house collapsed and the people inside were injured. The people brought them to hospital. There is nothing left of the house.

The falling wall also damaged Naval's aunts home. The earthquake damaged and weakened a lot of walls. The rain adds to the problems and walls collapse.

You can see this unstable wall. If the bottom is pushed out it will come crashing down.

People are unable to make repairs because they don't have the financial means to do so. This creates a danger for everyone living in the ravine area. Unstable walls will one day collapse.
