Storm 2006-El Paso-August

 

 

Our backyard flooded with water

 

 

Our front yard "dry" creek

Drainage canal behind someone's home, rock wall and cement barrier destroyed and collapsed

Homes near my office, rock wall destructed and fallen

 

 

Near my office, water overflowed from nearby drainage canal and brought water and debris into our parking lot

 

 

Across the street from my office, see chain link fence falling into drainage canal because of collapsed concrete

This one is a little hard to see, the brown house used to have a rock wall separating their neighbor below, the rock wall is gone and has fallen into the neighbor's yard.
