Glad your willing to help other Noah by lecturing them from a computer when they are down. I guess the whole town of Lyond that has been fine for 150 years should just be abandoned. I guess no-one should live in San Fran, they should just all move away since earthquakes are inevitable. Maybe all the roads destroyed should just be built up and over mountains instead of in canyons.

How about using common sense. No house should ever be built next to a river in an area that can flash flood. It was a time bomb regardless of 1K year or 10 year. There are countless houses I have looked at all over the canyons that should NEVER have been allowed to be built. That one is right next to the creek so close the person could fish out of the window. Bitch if you want at me, but the truth is we must change our building codes to prevent this.

This was a 1000 year flood. How about you go volunteer instead of spewing stupid shit on facebook.

I just hope they ban homes from being rebuilt in these flood plains. Seriously that home should have never been built there ever.
