  • The comment made about the building was about not building in these areas, not that the building is causing the flooding. 😉

  • This is nothing new to this area, it has always had flooding issues. This is not from building etc it naturally marshy and wet over in that area to begin with, standing water is not uncommon unless we are in the driest of times. 35 years ago we had to avoid cutting through that area and even some of Wiscon behind the hospital after heavy rains because of water covering the roads at times…

    • This is why we need the Impact Fees returned…so that the builders will be more careful where they build and not build on flood-prone land. Actually, builders should be driving around and scoping out the flooded lands, now. Thank you, Tom, for all your information! There was NO coverage about Hernando County on any news station, until yesterday. I guess someone read your column and figured it out, that it DOES rain here, too.

  • Yea it’s nice to have one source that reports things going on solely in Hernando county. The other media don’t cover Hernando co. Unless it’s a big incident.
