You just witnessed a flood scene in a nearby housing estate. For your class assignment, you want to write a description of the flood scene
 
After raining heavily and continuously for two days and nights, Taman Guru became flooded yesterday. The water level rose so high that it reached the windows of the houses. It was believed to be the worst flood ever to hit this town area.

The roads leading to and out of the housing estate were flooded too. In fact, the whole place looked like a lake. In the morning, when the water level was just starting to rise, children came out from their homes to play in the water. Some daring boys were swimming in the `lake'. Many residents could not leave their homes to go to work. Their children too had to skip school too.

When the water was too high for safety, the residents had to evacuate to higher ground. This was in the late afternoon. Rescue boats were sent to transport them. As the boats were insufficient to transport all the victims, some men waded in the shallower parts and walked away from the flooded parts.

Along the main roads, many cars were stalled in the water. Apparently, water had seeped into the engines. In front of house gates and within the house compounds, cars were stuck there too. The owners had to leave their homes without the vehicles.

The flood victims were put up at a hear by school which is on higher ground. At times of crisis, the charitable spirit of the community becomes ever more evident. People from other areas came to offer the flood victims help. They donated food and other essentials.

Fortunately, the floodwater subsided the next morning. The affected people were seen returning to their homes.
