We have been touched by the record flooding in Rhode Island

Geez, sometimes, it just doesn't end....we have had torrential rain over the last few weeks here in Rhode Island and the last few days proved to me too much for all of our Indian named Rivers.  My daughter Kelly lives on one of the rivers and yesterday was part of a mandatory evacuation.  She went back today to find that she had lost everything.  You know kids, they can't afford much when on their own at first and she didn't have renters insurance.  Such a shame.  I told her that I thought maybe it was God's way of giving her a new start.....doesn't help.  :-( 

I wish I knew what to do for her.

Anybody been through this ???

Thanks so much for the eyes and ears.



  1. Prayer are with you and your family. I hope everything works out ok for your daughter.

  2. So sorry for your daughter. It is impossible to stop that water! I wonder if renter's insurance would have covered a flood? We used to live near a river and had to have special flood insurance.

  3. I am so sorry for your daughter!
    We went through a flooding experience also, only it was caused by a faucet that broke and was running for 5 days while we were gone. Nothing was covered by our insurance because it was considered a FLOOD and we didn't have flood insurance. What a mess!!! I hope she has lots of help to clean up.

  4. Michelle,
    I was thinking of you today with all the rains and what I was reading about RI. I had planned to e-mail you tonight....I'm sorry for your daughters least she is safe.
    Hugs to you,

  5. ohhhh Michelle, that is just a horrible thing to happen... this rain has been unreal. Your poor daughter. Thankfully she is okay. Rhode Island got it bad though...
    My son's house is right on the Hockanum River so I worry every time we have heavy rains. They flooded last year, but thankfully have the sump pumps going and the river didn't rise enough this time.
    If you can think of anything she needs, let me know! hugs, D
