OB Flood Jan 2010 Mark Dodge 02Editor: Our set of photos taken during the last ‘great flood’ in OB – January 2010 – sparked the following response from local Mark Dodge.  Mark sent us the following photos.  He told us:

I was living at the end of Cape May at the time but parking in a garage on Narragansett. I parked, started home and just happened to have my camera. I had also almost gotten swamped on Bacon St between LB and Brighton. The water was up near the bottom of the doors of my Ford Ranger.

Here are my shots from that day. Some were taken while it was still coming down but the best ones are from when I returned after the sun came out.

what are you editors trying to do? really, dude? these pics clearly show the entire area under huge amounts of water – and right now the new condos have an underground garage, right were the flooding in Dec 2010 happened. what’s going to happen in the next big flood? will they sue the city for damages for allowing them to build there? just remember guys, when the waters come, everyone tried to warn you, including ocean beach planning board.

The OB Rag is here to get people to think, whether it’s OB’s latest flood, little girls telling us there’s more important words like “pay inequality”, and discussing whether the building of a replica of the San Salvador is more “genocidal propaganda”.
