Four days on and Fitow’s legacy is finally starting leave Ningbo, or at least my part of the city.

The road is pretty much dry and the river’s water level has dropped a smidgen.

However, parts of Ningbo city and it’s surrounding area remain under water, with no electricity or running water. Entire families have taken shelter at schools because their homes are currently unlivable. Instant noodles, bottled water and cans of congee have been provided, alongside a limited number of blankets.

The water may be receding but it has picked up rubbish, mud and debris on its journey, much of which will be left on the streets of Ningbo, in the flooded houses and abandoned cars. There will be a big clean up job after the water has gone.

In the words of the Ningbo TV anchorman “宁波加油!”

It's not about the destination. It's about the amount you spent to get there.
