Fetsund 18.9.95.


This summer I experienced something I have never experienced before. There was a flood where I live. I was at home when the flood was going on. I found out about the flood by watching the news and listening to the radio. We went to school during the flood but we couldn't have graduation because the room we use for that was being used as a warehouse, there was furniture and a lot of other stuff there. The flood was in the middle of June. Fetsund is 30 kilometers east of Oslo. Under Fetsund Bridge there is a lot of water, during the flood the water level rose quite a lot. My father and I went down to the bridge on a motorcycle to see the water. After the flood Øyeren was so dirty that we couldn't swim there. A new road was built because the old road was flooded. I live so high up that the water didn't come where I live.

P.S. Write soon!

Warmest regards Stine
