Susie knew that she needed the sandbags right now.
From the upstairs window Susie could see the burst banks of
the river and the water cascading down the lane towards her
house. The boys were running around downstairs saying that
water was coming under the porch door. The porch was filling up
and now the water had almost reached the top step and would
soon be creeping into the downstairs hall!
She returned downstairs.
“Look!” shouted Daniel, “the water’s coming in the hall now!”
