A full-fledged airbus was forced into the trees by the water.
Workers are doing their best to keep the airport functional, despite the unbelievably adverse situation.
Thankfully, the plane bodies are elevated, or else they’d practically be useless in the situation.

Unbelievable, isn’t it?
Getting rid of all this excess water seems like more than an uphill task.

The state of things seems intimidating, if you try and imagine the necessary means to mend the situation.
