Aruba Under Water
On October 20th, 2020, Aruba had an unusually heavy downpour. This small tropical storm came from the Southwest coast of Southamerica. Aruba experienced heavy rain with strong winds plus thunder and lightning. Many streets were underwater so the police closed low lying roads to prevent people from getting stuck. Some roads were impossible to cross and the heavy rain made it difficult for many people to see where they were driving.
Eventually the small tropical storm passed. By night time the roads began to clear up and people could drive through them again. It was a rough day for the Aruban community as we are so used to perfect weather.
