More Rockslide Photos, Oct 5, 2021, San Juan Cosala Raquet Club

Like the slide 14 years ago, I was up all night last night. There was some presentiment, perhaps, as I heard the huge clap of thunder at 3:32 a.m. this morning and heard the deluge of rain, I was reminded of similar happenings 14 years ago when the last devastating landslde had occurred. I remained awake until 5 and the rain never stopped, finally turned off my light and fell asleep and slept until Paciano called me at 7 and said another tromba (waterspout) had occurred and that there was much damage down the two main roads of the Raquet Club. I got up and this is what I discovered:             (Click on photos to enlarge photos and read captions.)

    I think the gods must be VERY unhappy with the population of the planet — volcanoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, oil spills, thunderstorms, and rockslides! What next? I’m glad you’re ok, though I’d be a little nervous on the side of that hill!

    Oh so sad and frightening~! Thanks for showing us~! There is one wall with water coming out of holes, I wonder if that means that there is deep water on the other side of the wall.

      Yes.. the soil is probably supersaturated as we are on the side of a mountain in order to have a flat yard it requires a quite high wall on the dowhill side. These pvc drains are giving water from the rain a channel out to reduce stress on the water and to keep the grass from turning into a bog. I need to have more drains as well as one portion of my grass gets very boggy.

    This brings back lots of memories. I have been thinking of you tonight after hearing that there had been a big rain in SJC. Was wondering how the RC faired. Linda Rudisell Hines posted a video earlier of water rushing by her street today. Stay safe.
