Yikes! Flood in Porto!

Posted by JennyH on 3 December 2008 in English (English)

Around the same time a bridge from London to Porto (Portugal) was built in record time, a huge number of roads to the South of town where demolished. Maybe this is where the materials to build this road bridge came from! I don't want to stand in the way of progress, but I feel sorry for the poor folk left without roads outside their homes.

If this event wasn't traumatic enough for the fellows of Porto, now, to top it off, Porto has flooded! (According to osmarender)

I wonder if UN troops will be borough in to help with the flood, and help stabilise the area.

Someone did something very stupid by overwriting London data and moving it to Porto:

The streets are now of course missing from Porto, because the ways have all been reverted to their original state.

The one messing with the data should properly re-enter the data, and all will be fine.

As for the flood, I'm looking into it right now.
