(ABC 27)   Holy crap. Subby's senior project in college was to re-design this exact dam to deal with a 100-year storm. Guess they didn't take my advice. Or maybe they did and that's why I barely graduated   (abc27.com) divider line 9

Thankfully it wasn't one of the rivers I've done the flood insurance study for. Did do some south jersey ones tho, wonder how it turned out

If the power were on I'd check the usgs gage data to see how high the water was getting

Ah.. Flood Insurance studies. The funny thing is I haven't done one since I went to go work for the Governement. I did a lot of them in private practice, mainly to show future development would not affect existing BFEs.

//Flo-2d and HECRAS for the win.

FTFY

Anybody who buys in a flood plain, whether along a stream or in a coastal area subject to storm surge should expect their home to go away some day. The ones that don't recognize this possibility are the ones you hear crying on the evening news that somebody else has to fix their problem. You can recognize them by the disdain heaped on them in the typical FARK comment thread.

/lives in surge zone
//house may go away some day
///knew it when I bought it
