damn i actually went somewhere and watched tv last night. looks bad up there with REAL flooding. my bridges were on the news which i found interesting because although it was a REALLY heavy rain, it wasn't anything to write home about. like a typhoon without bad wind. but man, the video on tv sure made it look massive, I hope you guys were not caught in any of that crazy stuff.
fuse box, nice. although I do find (in homes, not apts) that electrical boxes on outer walls always tend to leak a bit, and you can tell later one cause the pant around them flakes. 2 problems cause it so far as i can tell. first is lack of sealing, and second is real shitty concrete work, which is very common. they pout too much sand in and sometimes the concrete will actually grow and bubble under the paint. thankfully we didnt flood, but our stairs did all run down with water for a bit, which we baged and directed towards a drain.
I have never flooded from ground water, only from poor house design/constrtuction and flood from the sky haha.
belgian pie, if you bring that up to your land lord, can you tape it and post it? I would love to see what a landlord does when pressed on an issue that wont ever be looked at
