    Al Gore was right! Global sea levels are rising.

    Atleast it isn’t snow.

    It happens here where I live everytime it rains. We call it “ponding” because the water appears to just be sitting there and not going anywhere. I live really close to the Chesapeake Bay in the mid-Atlantic region of the US. The water tables underground are high already so it takes a little time for the water to be absorbed, evaporated and drained offed into the various waterways, especially in low lying areas.

    America ? so what ? heavy rain is heavy rain.. :D
    Sometimes we have city road floods like that here in Lithuania(Europe) when the drainage systems is overflowed.. Nothing to see here move along :)

    A warm summer rain is pleasant.

    We’ve had over 7 DAYS of rain in Sydney (AU) and at least another 4 are forecast. And we only have a few minor road closures due to flooding.

      A new Modern technology prevents flooding. It is called sewer systems.

        Many Australian cities have a special storm drainage system separate to the normal sewers, to cope with very heavy rainfall.

        It’s called “good planning” and “investment in necessary protection”.

    Drive a NIVA and you will have no problems anymore :)

    We get these kind of floods every midsummer, mosly because unmantained drainage holes are always glogged with junk…

    Methinks this is more of a stormwater management issue than a road repair one….

    Me thinks I am last

    Looks alot like Montreal after 5 minutes of rain. Our sewers suck.

  19. Thomas says:

    Most rain sewers are built based on yearly average rainfall with some safety built-in for random peaks and not for random heavy storms. Cost/effect as this kind of “flooding” is mostly harmless and won’t last more than hours.
