When It Rains It Pours

After our success in exploring the phrase “more or less” in many languages here is a task of a similar nature

There is a saying in Hebrew: 

“Troubles come in packages” 

צרות באות בצרורות 

“Tzarot Baot bitzrorot”.

 I am curious about analogs in other languages of this phrase.

Is there such a phrase in your language? (Or some other language that you know.) And what does it literally sais? Please, please contribute! (Other comments, links, and relevant pictures are welcomed.)

I got interested in this saying in the context of studying noise-models for fault-tolerant computation and specifically spontaneous error-synchronization, it  can also serve us also in the context of financial collapses.
