    Some curfew. 15th St. Looks like an interstate HWY. Who's enforcing it.

    If there is a curfew, and the police and other emergency folks are out, why are there still people in large trucks rubbernecking Charlotte St? Everyone in town knows that this street and all its side streets flood. Please stop driving your big trucks down our street. You are causing wakes and pushing the water up into people's houses just to satisfy your own selfish desires to voyeur the carnage.
