A couple of weeks ago there has been heavy rain in many parts of Denmark … it rained all day and all night; so many basements and “low” parts of the country were flooded, filled with water, damaging a lot of stuff. My sister was one of the people who got down to a pool of water with things floating everywhere in her basment. In the news I saw pictures of (lyngbyvej) being totally flooded, where the cars were completely drowned, were you only could se their roof. The trafic stopped the places where there was low-land because of the sewer not being able to hold on to all the water, resulting in the superfluous water raising and drowning the streets and especially the underground tunnels.
Personally I experienced something rather unusual as a result to a train station being floaded. I was visiting a friend of mine one day, were I the same day had to be at birthday party later; the thing about the birthday party was that I was the one picking up the birthday cake, so I had to be there on time.
I took the bus from my house to my friends house; but had to take the train to the birthday party cause it was faster and the “cake-shop” was near the station. I took of from my firends house to catch the train and to my surprise the tunnel that leads to the platform was closed, I looked around and saw some “station worker” standing beside a gate leading to the railway; I walked up to him and asked: “excuse me, If I want to take the train where do I get to the platform?” and then he answered: “I’m waiting for a signal to let people in and out through the railway”. That’s right, I had to walk about 10 meters up the platform through the railway. It felt like being in an old western movie. quite the experience though
The miniflood is all gone; from copenhagen at least. but when it rains it pours. so it’s still pouring
