8. my daughter's entire yard flooded on July 30 (in Phoenix)

We had a very hard rain which lasted for over an hour; 2 inches total rainfall Bell Road/15th area

She literally had a river flowing through her yard, which overflowed and spilled over into the swimming pool.

Her area is supposed to be an emergency water runoff zone to drain water off the large cross street. There is a pretty good sized speed bump which presumably is there to slow down the water, and a whopping total of one storm drain in the whole cul de sac. Compared to the storm drains here in Ft Worth that thing looks like a letter slot. The main cross street has about half the number of storm drains a similar street would have here.

She was told after she moved in that water could seep into the garage during monsoon, however this was Noah's flood in comparison.

It isn't clear if a storm of this magnitude has hit the neighborhood in recent history, but if the tendency to flood had been fully disclosed, FHA would never have financed that house.

Not to mention the house was on sewer according to all the documentation but actually is on septic - which needs to be replaced.
