in contrast to marks post below...the wife and i and MIL spent mothers day at the mil house bailing out about 8 in watter out of prety much the whole house.her house is in town and was built in 1954 and was built on a cement slab and over the years the nabors have added flowerbeds and such to there yards and mil is now the low house on the block and the village came through a few years ago and redid the road built it up about 10 in so now its higher than her house so guess where the watter runs now?? bought a new pump and it pumps at 3120 gal per hour it took 6.5 hours to get all the water out of her yard so it would stop runing back in the house sorry to rant just needed to spout........sHan

I'm so sorry to hear about the flooded house, my heart goes out toyou my home flooded with two feet of water in 1990 . it was devestating. we lost everything. Raymond and i had flood insurance but it can't help the feeling of dispare. i hope everything works out for you and you will be in our prayers. Debbie and Ray in Louisiana, right by the Amite River.

Sorry to hear about the flooding. We also do not have that problem and I imagine it is a bad deal.
In most city areas and also county areas it is against the law to build up areas that cause flooding onto neighboring properties so maybe you could get some legal advice as to getting the situation corrected. You will be hitting a brick wall so be prepared for a long and tough battle but it can be done.
I would contact a good attorney for advice. It might be worth it for your Mil.

I have seen pictures of flooding in the East and areas around where I used to live getting flooded because the river went over it banks. I would have a hard time dealing with that happening to me. We have just the oppisit problem lack of rain and run off water. With us the problem is fire because no rain and the grass drys up and a thunder storm comes and the lightning sets it all off! I live high and dry but wish we had more rain to help out this year with the comming fire season. Nothing like having both exstreams to cause problems for ya. Mark H.
