On May 7, 2019, Kingwood received as much rain in one afternoon as we were expecting in a whole week of heavy rains. This wasn’t just street flooding. It was street flooding on steroids…as these pictures and this video show.
Remember, no matter how frustrated you get, losing your car or your life isn’t worth it. Cambio said she turned around and sheltered in the fire station on Kingwood Drive until traffic started moving again. Very smart lady!
When all this is over, we need to have Kingwood-wide storm drain inspections. Not all streets flooded equally. Some fared well. Others didn’t. We need to identify the streets with blocked drains and collapsed sewers before hurricane season gets here. Hey, we all passed Proposition A, didn’t we? Let’s dip into that lockbox for drainage fees and fix some drainage problems.
