I was at work in the beauty clinic in Ferrymead when it hit in Feb, I was on my lunch break chatting with my boss..then it happened. I just sat there in shock while everything around me fell to the floor and the road filled up with water. My boss was screaming at me to get up and get out but my shock was so intense I couldnt hear her and she physically had to pull me outside. There we watched the road completely flood, and I ran inside to grab my keys to move my car which was slowly getting consumed by the flood. I thought this was the worst of it but then as I was trying to contact my friends and family i found out one of my friends was trapped and hadnt been heard from. I later found out his life was taken when he was trying to save another. We all sat on the road and cried.
