The rains have been unceasing and the streets of Santa Cruz are flooded.

Its dangerous to drive because the potholes and drains are covered by rainwater. Cars bang into the potholes and sometimes run aground in uncovered drains.

I normally don't drive in torrential downpours. The rain lashes down with incredible ferocity; the windshield sometimes can't keep pace as it tries to wipe away the water. The mist blinds the windscreen and sometimes drivers have to look out of their side window to see if there are pedestrians or cars in front.
