It's unfortunate, it was a fun place to visit. The recent subdivisions at the top of the ridge in EC are the cause of this. Water goes down hill always.

I haven't heard any reports of casualties; hard to watch that and believe there weren't any.. :?
One. A National Guardsman was swept away trying to rescue a woman and her cat. Was found a mile down stream yesterday.

I take it the townspeople had enough time to unass the AO then, because that looks like a "no survivors" type of flash flood. Those buildings must have some serious foundation under them. :shock:

It was a white area. White people float.

Did the Army do swim qual? I can tell you from my observations at Parris Island and Quantico that black folks do not float well.

I saw so many brothers jump off the platform in full gear and just not surface! :lol:

The people who received catastrophic flood damage for the 2nd time in 2 years should receive whatever insurance payouts they’re entitled to. But they should also be told no mas in the future. Should be 3 strikes and you’re out..

Lots of people are talking about not rebuilding. Eventually, insurance companies are going to refuse to pay, if not now. I know a ton of people in Catonsville are having their insurance companies refuse to pay for basement damage.

Count your blessings 89!

I am not sure where to even start at trying to pronounce names like this: T’Rhigi Diggs and Zyquarius Bradley. :?

Somebody needs to set up shot to sell paintballs that are color matched to gang colors.

Police haven't policed since Freddie Gray a couple of years ago. The new PC was asked what he needed to really start making the streets safe. He said 250-300 more cops. :lol:

The White House says Baltimore’s murder rate is higher than El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.

CBS Baltimore fact checks the White House, and finds that (oops!) it’s true!

So when we grant asylum to Central Americans... I guess we had better not send them to Baltimore

That simply cannot be true. If guns are so hard to get, their murder rate should be near zero.
