Rains Cause Temporary Flooding

For the second time in a week, strong storms led to some flooding issues in Meridian.

Around 2 p.m. Thursday, the far right lanes in both directions on 8th Street had standing water after the brief, heavy rain.

The flooding caused one lane of 8th street near 29th Avenue to be closed while city crews worked to clear debris from street drains.

    Good post Redline. Soon as she gets all the deadbeats fired she will have people working that will keep the streets clean, so you will not have flooding from trash. Or maybe you could help keep some of the trash picked up in your spare time and stop trashing the Mayor.

    I've asked my Councilwoman to assist in repairing the flooded area behind our church, which is also her church, and nothing has been done. We really need to pray about who we put into office from now on. I have not been satisfied with our city or county leaders. They act as if bringing industry into Meridian is their only job. Why not fix the mess Meridian is in and make it attractive to visitors and safe for residents?
