    way to look out for your fellow man woohoo, hope your not ever one of my neighbors. This type of scenario always brings out the greedy ones looking to profit off the misery of others.

    If you’re minimally skilled to do a job that takes minimul skills…why wouldn’t you work for minimum wage? Wow, typical of people now who vastly over rate themselves and their abilities and would rather leech off of the goverment than get a job and/or help a community. WOOHOO……….. nope, more like a yayhoo…….

    They “upgaded” the drainage @ 2-3 years ago . They removes huge concrete drainage pipes along all major roads and replaced them with much smaller black pipe.

    So where do we sign up for work to fix all this mess? I could use a good paying job. If it pays minimum wage then do it yourselves.

    I will pray for everyone there, I was born in Pensacola and I have never seen anything like this. I live in N C and I think we will be getting some of what you are getting now.. God bless you all and keep you safe

    The past two days have been completely insane. I’ve lived in Florida since 1987 and have never seen it this bad. I live on the west side of Pensacola and couldn’t make it very far out of my neighborhood. Stayed home from work today and I’m staying off of the roads. Be safe and be smart, stay home.
