Great vet member and good guy Leo has just gone thru what must seem like a nightmare.
read his thread 'LOST" this is even worse than we can imagine as it appears te flooding of houses in waist deep nasty water may have been the result of intentional damage to a levy holding the water back.

I think sending Leo a few donations would be a good idea- you can PM him for his paypal address to send help in the form of PERSONAL PAYMENT ( that way greedy PP will not take thier bite from the amount). getting it from me may be a much better idea-- so PM when you can & I will send his PP to you.
any amount would help..

'There but for the grace of (insert your personal GOD here) go I."

I know we cannot help everyone in the world that deserves it, but using that as a reason to help nobody is something that has always saddened me.

Len
^^^^^^^^^^^ this is copypasta from my thread in the VET section- I will copy that OP and post his vet thread here for the entire forum to read-- just waiting for Leonardo's OK to do that.
_____________

I am waiting for permission from Leo to copypasta his thread placed in the Vet section-

The gist is... his home in Brazil just got flooded in waist deep NASTY water without warning and very likely in intentional act.

I am waiting now for Leo's paypal address and i can say if this had happened to any of us, we would feel any help we can send would really be a good deed.

The amount is not as important than the act of caring and helping out t fellow member..

Aside from his home and possessions is the tragic loss of some of his beloved pets.

It make take a while until Leo can send me his PP addy- please wait on me to Post again in this thread and then PM so i can help you to help Leo.

:thanks: Len(aka Leonard-)

The pets are safe! I fed them and assured all are fine.
Len, anyone with access to vets, its ok to copy the thread to open forums... mods its ok to move the thread if needed...
I dont have an computer so its hard to me for copy paste things (i'm on mobile on the last days)...


Seems like someone (individuals, but authorities say "maybe a company") damaged a water barrage and a big amount of water drained into a community, where I live. 700+ were hit, and hundreds are on shelters.

Its not a fair situation so yesterday we gone there to help...

Two lifes were lost on the most hit area... around 800 meters from my house...

Who want to help, say a prayer to your personal god, pray for us, so everyone can recover and be safe...
Thanks all for reading and helping. The thread in vets section really helped me...

WOW that is terrible! LEO, I dont know you but i am very sorry for what happened to you and others in your area :( I personally know if that happened to my house i'd go insane simply because it is one of the most important things in the world to me. I wish you and others luck in recovering from this terrible event! :angel:
BTW whats the go with INTENTIONAL DAMAGE? Is it an act of terrorists, or a bunch of imbecile workers?

I do not think Leo would mind me putting his OP and other posts from the vet section here for all to read/ i have his PP if any want it == thanks my brothers!!

************
Im writing this on my sister house because a water barrage ruptured near my house, and the whole neighboorhood is underwater
Me and my family lost many things, tv, fridge, etc.
Everyones safe though.

Sorry for this thread but I'm really lost and need to post this.
I wont be active in the next days..

We are heading back there now to try and salvage my pc the cats, and some things.

Wish me luck, LPF. Times are tough.

Leonardo

and more..
j


Just got back. Damn! Tough.. I got 1 of my cats and 3 of my dogs. Its so cold inside the water, and its going up. Inside my house, water is at waist level.
My mother gone there (i'm with some internal wound in my left leg, probably because of the cold water + effort to reach my house, so i'm pretty wasted) so she can save the remaining cats (love cats, have 7, one died yesterday ).
My mother will bring in one of the cats that just had kitten; all safe though,
Situation is out of control here. People crying on the streets, furniture on the roads...

Thanks ped, anthot and arg, it really helps to read this. Im not sure but maybe I'll post pics...

Thanks again, and sorry fo punctuation, grammar.

Leonardo
and this

We coudnt save 5 cats. 1 still pregnant. My mother gone there again and fed the cats, and they are on the couch back rest (farther from water), I just hope that the water stops rising, because we cant save them anymore (crying)

Local authorities said that vegetation was cut near where the barrage "ruptured". All point to a criminal act, they say. A crime that hit 500 houses, but no injuries/deaths reported yet..

I'm most worried with my mom, she fell inside the putrid water. No injuries, but maybe she ingested some water and I've seen rats on the water...

I know its so much tragedy for 3 posts...

@2007Rev
We saved 1 mom cat, his litter, 1 collared female cat (she is only used to living indoors, vulnerable imho) and 3 dogs. All are 100% fine....

((((((((

not sure but what I thnk Leo is calling a barrage must be like a levy or dam- something that keeps the water where it should be and not waist deep in houses.


want to help? great

Just add hot mail to his user name and you have his PP- all lower case-
if confused just PM me --hak

Great idea on donations the more i read it again the true nature of this tragedy is so much more obvious if ppl only put in what they can with the amount of members we have we could make things just a bit better

Thanks blaster-- you are correct- we have needed to do things like this before and I am always very proud on my fellow members and their big hearts.
any one of us could be next- cherish every day above ground and say you love your friends and family as often as you can--
********************


OKay I was right! PP works just fine to Brazil IF PP gets their bite as a gift I got the same as James
"We're sorry. We're not able to complete personal payments to account holders in Brazil at this time."


BUT when I send as payment for services -- no address as it is for service and not goods well then

PP is working just fine- greedy bastards

guess we really do not have a choice- i hope PP chokes on their 4%

@nko29
Hey, thanks for that. Yeah, what hurts more is seeing my mom losing her things...
Damage seems to be intentional because vegetation was cut around the rupture, and the levy/dam is made of clay/loam/argil, so digging a small hole for it to drain slowly opened a 19ft hole on it.
What sucks more is.. we woke 4:30am with water coming up from the bathroom drain.
We have my grandma with us (her house is behind mine, only a little higher) so we had to evac before things could get worse (she cant swim or run).


@LaserSam
Yeah i'm saddened to see that. I was hoping to build something cool for my 2000th post but we will have delays... thanks for the prayers.

@blaster
Things are better now, Tony. People lost so much there... piles of furniture, stoves, on the streets corners. Its horrible :( but water was drained now.

@len
Thanks for copying it for me Len, I'll check pp, I'll keep all updated on what I use the money, its the least I can do.

@shakenawake
Thanks bro... in the name of our family, thank you.

Its raining here (bad) so I dont think we will come back to my house today...

Thanks all for the big hearts and words. It really helps

Edit
@jetlasers
Thanks, we are safe now. Just add (at) hotmail dot com to my username.... thanks bro.

Edit2
Even with 4% its still great, thanks so much len and jonathan.
