Raindrops keep falling on my head

Raindrops keep falling on my head
The last two days have been rather stormy here in Cape Town. I took this shot while driving down Loop Street today in the rain.

Yesterday was particularly bad, with trees being uprooted by the wind and roads being flooded. A few suburbs were without electricity for a couple of hours, because their power lines had been damaged by falling trees and heavy wind.

I don't mind the storms at all, but that's because I have a comfortable brick house, a heater, and enough clothing to keep me warm. But what about the people living in shacks made of corrugated iron and wooden boards? And even worse, what about those who call the street their home? This kind of weather has far greater consequences for them than a few hours without electricity...
