    I guess it’ll be a swimathon instead of a march.

  • Lakewood Local says:

    This is the cause of all the construction going up and the sewer system infrastructure that an not keep up. There is no place for the water to drain off to.

  • Chacham says:

    @Lakewood Local, are you for real?
    The videos are not in any area of construction at all! Stop blaming the construction for stupidity, that discredits any true concerns.

  • AR says:

    @Chochom, actually, I saw major flooding in an area where I never saw it before – in front of the new plaza next door to Evergreen. It’s obviously due to all the new construction in the area. @lkwdlocal is right.

  • Chaver says:

    Thank you to Lakewood Chaveirim for their tremendous response in the last 3 hrs to Shabbos – responding to over 200 calls for active home floods and people trapped in vehicles!

  • Uncommon sense says:

    @Chacham- Lakewood local is right. It’s not just new construction areas, any forest absorbs a lot of water. Over the past few years, miles of trees have been cut to put in dozens of communities. Roads are paved in what used to be absorbent grass and dirt. And many places don’t have proper runoff. Nature can’t sustain this type of growth.

    And yes, awesome job to all emergency personnel that helped during Shabbos.
