    I certainly do not mean to make light of the misfortune of those affected by these floods but aren’t people in Jefferson County paying for a $4 billion sewer system (plus interest)? I would think for that kind of coin they should have a sewer system that could make sure these floods don’t happen. I think they need a refund.

    There’s a difference in sewer & storm sewer. Not defending the sewer system in any way.

    April Fendley I guess if rains hard enough, fast enough it’s gonna happen.

    It’s ridiculous. I live in Hoover now and the storm system shoots water back out in certain areas. This time and a few weeks ago, the storm system in Pets Smart on Lorna/hwy31 shoots water up like a fire hydrant, flooding the parking lot. I saw a picture of another spot in Hoover doing the same thing where all the flooding was near the bowling ally.

    Mike Johnson you are correct. I’m not defending any particular city or sewer system, but when that amount of rain falls in a such a short amount of time any location can have flash flooding.

    Tonya Hardin Yarchak Hoover doesn’t have a bowling alley. Are you referring to the bowling alley in Vestavia?
