I've lived in the area for many years and am very familiar with some areas that are more prone to flooding than others. Sometimes it is just the road, yet some locations are in serious flood areas. Even 100 year flood zones vary where they have to be re-evaluated if there are many floods and as more homes, drives, sidewalks, asphalt, streets, buildings, commercial properties and schools are built and developed there is less land area for flood waters to drain and less soil to adsorb the excess rain water. And most the time developers would just bull-doze trees and leave less foilage, vines, vegetation to adsorb the rain water. With more awareness for the environment most developers now days try to preserve large, established trees and green spaces to help with flooding and preserve the soil. drainage, vegetation, and property values.
