The house of 23 yr old Agnes Aro who's family remained unscathed during the ordeal. The waterline can clearly be seen at the below edge of the upper windows. She explained;
" It was about 11:30 pm when the water came down the street. I was in the house with my family and as the water rose we had to go upstairs. We were al so frightened as the water came higher we went to the top of the house, the only thing we could do was to break through the roof. It was terrible, in the darkness I could hear the screams of people,some shouting for help, animals and houses just washed down the street - it was so horrible and frightening, there was nothing we could do to help anyone, thank god none of our family was hurt"
