[quote]Call and write your federal congressman and senator and ask them for help. They will at least submit a "congressional inquiry" and if it's possible to get an exception or consideration for mitigating circumstances sometimes they come through.[/quote] This isn't bad advice at all. Also, ...

re: # of homes flooded: Katrina vs '16 Flood? - BrerTiger
[quote]True, but the OP specifically asked for "flooded homes"[/quote] Good point. At any rate, Katrina is NOLA's worst natural disaster and this is the worst for metro Baton Rouge. Without a doubt and not even close....

re: # of homes flooded: Katrina vs '16 Flood? - BrerTiger
[quote]"Or damaged" That is very vague wording[/quote] It was a hurricane. Flooding isn't their only mode of wrecking shite. There's just a lot more homes in Orleans. That tips the scales quite a bit. Maybe measure percent of homes in Livingston, EBR, Ascension vs. Orleans, Plaquemines, ...

re: Old Jefferson flooding? - BrerTiger
[quote]We live right on Round Oak (toward the front, thankfully) and last we checked (about 2 hours ago) the water was still about 1 ft shy of reaching the top of storm drain in our yard. Our neighbor showed me the one in their yard and the water was 4-6 inches from coming out of the top. [/quote] ...

re: Old Jefferson flooding? - BrerTiger
[quote]That neighborhood around Batavia is going to be very bad.[/quote] True. But this flood did create an online party for us peeps from that neck of the woods. I loved running wild as a kid in that neighborhood and the surrounding woods. Made us the bad mamma jammas we are today. Or something....

re: Back flow flooding projections for Shenendoah? - BrerTiger
[quote] The elevation of most of the homes around Chatsford is around 40 ft. [/quote] Sounds about right. Some of the highest, driest ground in southeast Baton Rouge. Something I learned thanks to the 83 flood. House I grew up in Antioch Villa on the other side of Tiger Bend was probably t...

[quote]She should be ok close to highland. I'm near Jefferson hwy and Antioch and I'd have to guess that the closest water to me is in the back of Round Oak.[/quote] Thanks for that update.

re: Old Jefferson flooding? - BrerTiger
[quote]How much more water do you think? I have about a foot and a half before it gets in my house[/quote] I lived on Batavia in 83 and I would GTFO without delay. Amite is five feet higher. That's nothing to play around with. Also a lot more development since 83 in the flood plain....

[quote] I lived in the front part of Morel in 83. Water came halfway up my front yard, but never came in house. [/quote] Same for my house on Batavia in 83. Water came halfway up yard. Well graded lot. But most of Morel homes did flood that year, especially past Beekman towards back of neighb...

[quote]Fournette only had 13 carries. Averaged 7.1 ypc[/quote] You didn't seriously think I was impressed by Sam Houston State's defense, did you? It was more a commentary on the buffet of schools at Luby's available for LSU to feast on each year. I'll just sit here on my front porch, amid ...
