Anyone think it's odd that a brand new area flood so badly? I know this is a natural weather anomaly, but there isn't a byou near there is there? Why is it flooding so badly? All those buildings are in danger of flooding. A friend who lives near there says behind HEB he can smell raw sewage. EW!

Now I dont know how long you have lived here but slightly past the shopping center on Kingwood Dr you will see a bayou. Its a naturally low lying area, on top of the giant area covered in concrete that does not allow the surface to soak up surface water. All diverted to the bayous, which are already backed up. Maybe think about stuff before you post out of boredom?

The apartment property that was there was very woodsy and swampy. There was a lake in the middle.

Houston and this area is a swamp, and when you pour concrete on top, it's still a swamp.

Randall's flooded in 1994. We're you not living here then???

Probably been living here longer than all y'all. My point is, why did they not raise the new parking lot when they had the chance to? "New" being the operative word here. The bayou is Ben's Branch.

The river is now flooding it due to the dam release. But HEB flooded well before the river rose.

It was hugely irresponsible for Lovett, the developer, not to put in a major drainage system. The apartments have always flooded in the past and you could always see standing water there. How does Houston have no laws to provide for this?

Please. Let's be respectful. There is zero reason to be rude and insulting. We have time outs for those who can't resist.

Seems to me we pay lots more taxes but other than that are things better being Houston? Granted the coast guard was here asap when flooding happened but should the flooding have happened at all? It seems worse than 94 to me.

Engineers draw up the plans based on soil test. They determine rise and fall of the land before the building is built, dirt compaction before concrete is poured... - all in conjunction with City of Houston Plan Review....and so on that goes. I don't know why they didn't raise it either except maybe it put would put too much water stress on the surrounding lands. There is exactly 2 cents worth.
