What Is Cottonwood Residential?
Residential flooding in the Tampa Bay area has reached a point where it’s impossible to even identify the source of the problem.
A spokesperson for the Tampa Department of Emergency Management told BuzzFeed News the city’s Emergency Operations Center is trying to identify all residential flooding in an attempt to pinpoint the cause of the flooding.
Tampa is experiencing more than 3,600 days of rain since January 5, the spokesperson told BuzzFeed.
The spokesperson also told BuzzFeed that the number of days of total rainfall in the city has been rising over the past several weeks.
The city is currently experiencing more rain than in any other month on record.
Despite the flooding, there are still many residents in the neighborhood who are trying to stay in their homes, but there’s also still a lot of homes that are still underwater, and a lot more homes that have water running under their roofs.
The spokesperson said that the city is working to address the problem with the construction of additional flood walls and other measures to prevent flooding from entering homes.
“As we continue to assess the impact of this storm, we’re doing all we can to ensure the safety and well-being of our residents and residents of Tampa Bay,” the spokesperson said.
“We are also working closely with other communities in the area to provide support for those who need it, such as those who may be impacted by flooding or the flooding itself.”
