Are there any AW members caught in the floods?

Which floods? The flooding in Sri Lanka has been mostly in the south and east, so us two AW members in Sri Lanka aren't affected since we're in the west. Where else has there been flooding?

It seems like flooding is happening in a few places. :( There's Cuba (http://www.granma.cu/ingles/2008/marzo/vier21/Baracoa.html); Barrie, Ontario, Canada (http://www.thebarrieexaminer.com/ArticleDisplay.aspx?e=953711); Poundbury, UK (http://www.thisisdorset.net/display.var.2139741.0.headache_over_flooding.php) (my geography sucks); and of course Sri Lanka (http://www.irinnews.org/Report.aspx?ReportId=77372), which apparently has been experiencing flooding for over a week (http://www.colombopage.com/archive_08/March2134305JV.html).

There have been flash floods in North Central Texas, but I haven't been affected. Several people have died though. :(
