  1. 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.

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.
