The damages from this flood is unimagineable. I try posting here and there; and just whenever LOL. You are right, the residents of those destroyed homes need all the help they can get. The neighborhood is starting to smell better and certainly look better. Each home looks like its under new construction. Exterior, roof, interior stud walls & concrete floors. There will be homes not rebuilt. The owners did not have flood insurance and it was not designated a flood zone. Most carry a hefty mortgage. I believe the county drainage system was not working or working properly. The county set up portable pumping generators at the neighborhood filter system after the storm. That removed all the water that rushed in and it left quickly. The residents were already back in their homes the next day demolishing the interiors. Im enjoying the cookouts. I see people smiling again. They are so appreciative. This is the South where people socialize for a living LOL!
