Water, water all around but not a drop to drink

People are still waiting on the mountaintops and on the rooftops of their inundated homes. Water is all over the place but there is no drinking water available. The rainwater has mixed with the sewers and brought with it dead bodies and livestock. The force of the water has turned shrubs and trees to pulp, a layer of it floating over the brown muddy waters and bringing with it sediment and silt.
