Why is it so hard for people to understand not to drive through deep water?

A shout out to Delmarva Power guys. Our power went out at midnight and I watched them out in the deluge working to restore it. Thanks! I do not know how the do it between the rain and lightening strikes!

Civic and Belmont ALWAYS floods. The east side street were rivers. My back yard is now a pond.

I think that is great how the fire dept helps out with flooded basements. I honestly did not think that was done anymore.

7:37 from what I saw and have seen in the past, they deserve it.
I have seen them in the most horrible storms out there trying to turn our power back on.
For some reason our neighborhood always ends up in the dark.
E Side, Sby.

What do they do with a flooded basement?

859, where I am from, the volunteer companies will pump it out for you. However I am from the land of basements and most have sump pumps, but sometimes, the pumps would fail due to power outages etc. It is a kind thing to do.

Usually they get called for a flooded basement. What usually is the case is it is an electrical hazard to have all that water where there is electric. What they usually do is turn off the electric. Sometimes they will pump it out however I doubt last night they had time to do anything and it would have just flooded again today.

Fire Dept only responds when an electrical hazard is present with a flooded basement. They can pump it out and get the electric turned off.

I would say they earned their wages that night.
