We had flooding from lat night’s storm which left 2 inches of water throughout the office. But today we had a flash flood storm at noon that flet 16 inches of mud and water in the office. The force of the water blew open the front door and swept everything in the front and pushed it into the main studio. The force of the water was enough to open the second studio’s lift-up garage type door and let the water out the back. We are now waiting for the next storm that is supposed to hit tonight and it is predicted to be bigger than the one at noon.
This is the main studio.
The bath room.
The water floated our storage containers and moved them 15 feet.
This shows the high water mark on the building.
Even with the doors locked the equipment room flooded and damage a lot of equipment.
This is why we were flooded. The storm drain is completely damned up with trash and trees and reeds. The city is supposed to keep the drainage canals clean so this won’t happen we have been asking the city for over a year to clean the canal. They didn’t do it so we got flooded. They seem to have a lot of lame excuses for their non action, none of what solved the problem. We will be out of business for a long time because of their negligence.
