If only they had drained the swamp when they had the opportunity.

Get a broom handle and poke the debris that's clogging the storm drain.

Some guy promised to drain the swamp.

Appears all he did was clog the drain his BS and destructive swamp creatures.

If that's their Rhode Island Ave location I used to live a block away from there. It's not exactly a flood plan. I have questions.

Roughly where the 1 is on Rhode Island there is a steep downward slope. North Capitol St. Passes under Rhode Island a little to the west of there. This is by no means a low-lying area compared to surrounding terrain. How the Fark did this happen?

I can't speak to the topography of the area or anything, but the storms over the last few days have been heavy and angry. We've had areal flooding watches and warnings basically all week. I could see where a combination of shenanigans, plus the storms we've been having, might cause a flood like that.

It looks like it's the door closest to the underpass. There's a lot of higher ground around where runoff could be coming from, and a lot of paved/brick surfaces at street level. If the storm drains are not draining, or draining slowly, then you get stuff like this.

Probably because commercial doors open outward and there's about 2000 pounds of force holding the door closed?

The good thing about coastal cities flooding, is that the cholera and diptheria from poo and rotting dead animal and plants will be all sterilized by the gasoline, oil, diesel, household cleaners, pharmaceuticals, detergents and soaps that get swirled into it.

That's really clever but FFS just steal a boat from somebody who isn't home. Heck, break in and find out their workplace and pick them up and bring them home, even. They'll probably be thankful. If not, fark 'em, it's an emergency and you had to get to the store to buy scratch tickets.

Also it's washed out to sea, and you know the saying, "The solution to pollution is dilution."

Oh yeah, that one is way better than the oft-practised "the solution to pollution is absolution"

Clogged storm drain.

But really, if you have flood waters rising like a foot high and THAT is all that's coming through the door, we'll I'd be kicking myself for not getting some cheap pump, at least as long as the power stays on. Just run a hose to some higher window and everything's happy and maybe not too moldy.
