    It is true that when you pour to much cement around waterways, etc. there is no where for that water to go. Therefor you have flooding. Right now I am surrounded by water on 3 sides. We are not in a flood zone. But now that the city has decided to make our area like VA. Beach we are going to be in trouble. This used to be all country, now gone rural area, soon to be a town dumped on us. So with 3 Rivers, we will see flooding. Does this have to do with climate change or the green climate or what ever they want to call it. NO. They just need to learn how to build in a way that the water has a place to go when it rains and during hurricanes, etc. when rivers and oceans do rise.

    I recall an apartment complex that never had flooding problems (this would of been in the town I grew up in).
    Then the first Wall-Mart (back when Sam was still alive) came to town, adjacent to the apartment complex.
    Due to the parking lot, the first serious rain, the first floor apartments closest to the store flooded.
    Dont recall if Wal-Mart paid for damages or did anything about it.
