Government aren't going to give those people anything, and even if their insurance (if they had any) builds them a new house you can't replace personal things, or a life.

They may get low interest loans from the government, but you're what's gone can't be brought back no matter what.. I can't imagine how that must feel...........

I think we all are lucky that we never had that sort of problems.

Well you have enough canals so you don't have to worry about water to put the fires out and you don't have the trees as thick

We're an inland sea port and like I've said we could run our boats right out under the Golden Gate Bridge so we've only 16 feet above sea level ........ The trouble here is they stopped dredging out our canals and rivers the environmentalism put a stop to it, so they raise the levees and that's the wrong way to go.. One of these days we'll flood.......

In the old days, 1850 or so, there were 5 creeks that came though Stockton and they built around them.. From then to 1955 they filled in most of them, but old mother nature still remembered, and in 1956 we had a big flood in downtown and the water came from where those creeks had been.... I worked as a shipping clerk in one of the stores and helped sand bag our store.. After that they built a diverting canal across the old 5 creeks outside of town and that took cars of the problem..........

We keep thinking we can change mother nature, but she's a tough old b.tch and lets us know why, " IT'S NOW GOOD TO FOOL WITH MOTHER NATURE."
