My sentiments exactly +David Robertson
Yes it is bad luck to lose your mobile home, or your car,... carpet or sofa.., but it is hardly the 'disaster' people are making out.
Thankfully it appears nobody has been hurt.
Our landslides here which will close the roads for a couple of days are nothing compared to the body filled rivers of mud that other countries see.
We have no trains and buses running at the moment, and you have to pick your driving line carefully along the roads that are open, but we will get over it.
