The entire city of Huntsville is flooded, its up to 7 ft deep in parts. A guy on the news said that he had never seen anything like this the entire time that he has lived here. My mom teaches at this high school, and their building is located on the first floor of the community college. The first floor has flooded and they have evacuated people to the second floor, so my mom and sister are going to be stuck there for quite some time. Outside of the building, around that area, dumpsters and cars are floating. My brother is also trapped at his middle school. A major road which connects South and North Hsville is terribly flooded and hummers can barely drive through it.. This is so wierd. I have never seen flooding like this in this part in my life. My stepdad, who has lived here for 40 or so years, said that it has never been like this.

First figure out how to purchase a "Zodiak" raft, after that most of your problems will be solved. Second convince your insurence agency the policy"does" include water damage.

Our old house, which my mom has not sold yet, has to be totally destroyed. Its right in the center of all of that craziness.. I really do hope that her insurance covers that. She just had a ton of work done on it too..


"Damm that sucks for you guys over there. I hope your family gets back home soon and safe."

I have not lived here long. But I went to Huntsville High for the remainder of my high school. My brother should be going to challenger middle, but when we moved he wanted to stay at his school.

It's to be believed, it is a natural occurence. Although after we humans made an introduction of mass uncontrolled pollution factories, global warming is more prolific. sad too, it was reorted in the local press that it will cost more than 1 million U.S dollars to even begin clean up of the Great Lakes.

I'm aware that pollution is bad and a problem we need to deal with. Clean air and water are of utmost importance but the theory of global warming due to CO2 is something I can't say is reality. Now, the earth may be warming but there are so many other reasons for this than a rise in CO2. I won't get into that argument on this site but needless to say, as someone who works in geoscience, I would rather look at the entire pool of data than just single out whatever I need to prove my theory. Don't get me wrong, I think the environment is important but I would rather look at the facts through a scientific view than a political activist.
