Flooding after Raining in Our Neighborhood – Nature 37

Our neighborhood, always get flood in the last few years. Unbelievable, even the rains in just few hours.

What make neighborhood frustrated and even angry that flooding is then followed by these terrible things:

- blackout of electricity
- no internet connections
- stuck of cars in the middle of flood.

We wonder what does cause the flood in our neighborhood and city (Baton Rouge, LA?)

Based on flood risk assessment by “riskfactorcom” (2022) that our city, Baton Rouge has lower risk (26%) of flood until next 30 years.

So, why we get flood easily with little rain?

Some of our neighbors have interesting arguments that our neighborhood has faced with in-natural floods.

Flooding might relate to human activities such as:

- growing housing rapidly (uncontrollable) and lack of drainage system
- and less trees

What do you think?

  1. That's really annoying. Less trees is definitely not the reason...I can see that the place is so green.

  2. Pienso que a la hora de construir no se tiene en cuenta a la naturaleza.
    Eso propicia muchas desgracias.

  4. We have retention ponds in our neighbors that help with the overflow of rain water. It's hard to know how to address the problem with so many houses being built.

  6. Lack of drainage seems to be the cause. Otherwise looks like a lovely neighbourhood.
