City trucks brought in sandbags in case of flooding. Fortunately they were not needed — this time. But businesses and homeowners are keeping them handy. We’ll be getting more rain soon.

Is the rain supposed to get that bad?
It floods in this area of town pretty regularly, as it’s only a block from the river and about one foot above sea level. The Huntington neighborhood already has had a lot of houses with flooded basements the last few days. King Street has been under two to three feet of water after the worst storms. That hasn’t happened yet this year, but the rainy season isn’t over yet. They’re just preparing for the worst and hoping for the best.
I hope there will be no flood this time.
