Tragedy or Apocalypse in Mauritius – 30 March 2013


This happened on Saturday 30th March 2013.

Since morning it was raining heavily everywhere in Mauritius. I was at Quartier Militaire with my brother and cousin. At around 1.30 pm we were returning home and we saw that the road was congested. Slowly we entered the city and what we saw was catastrophic. It was something which never happened before in Mauritius. At Cassis, nearly 15 vehicles were damaged due to the heavy flood.

Below are the images/videos which show the damages done by the flood:

These activities were carried out in the island since yesterday. A big thanks to all Mauritians for their direct and indirect contribution to help the people who were impacted by the flood.
