    Talking A rainy day

    Please correct the following and explain why! Thanks!

    It's pouring raining outside. I forgot to bring an umbrella.
    The streets in Shaw town are not very clear on the map and I am afraid I've got lost.Now I've got soaked and don't know where to go. I ran to the nearest bus stop. I took a shelter under a roof at the front of a department building, waiting for the bus. Luckly, bus came soon. I got on and went home.

    It's pouring=It's raining

    Therefore:

    It's pouring/raining outside. I forgot to bring an umbrella. The streets in Shaw Town are not very clear on the map and I'm afraid I am lost. Now, I am soaked and don't know where to go. I ran to the nearest bus stop. I took a shelter under a roof in front of a department building and waited for the bus. Luckily, the bus came soon. I got on and went home.

    Hope this sounds good.

    Note: you are writing in the historical present.

    It's pouring down outside and I forgot to bring an umbrella.

    It's pouring. It's raining. I'm going to get wet if I'm not there yet.
