It's not just friends. It's family--and a communal summer home: Now apparently underwater: basement, fully underwater, ground floor--under water. Most of these homes are built in such a way to withstand this sort of thing--especially the older brick ones. This said--there's no way for us to tell what the damage is at this point: We can't even get near the area, we can only see from above the level of flooding. If I live here in the states for most of the time now, it's because I have here an equal part of family, and they are from Philadelphia. Hard for me to focus on anything else just now......At this stage, I am less concerned with the house and more concerned with very elderly members of my family who live in that area: All currently evacuated. TBC.
