The water level was well above normal for flooding. DUH.
However, cities have some discretion in regulating the flow into the sewers that caused the basement flooding. They can keep more water on the street that is flooding and not let it go directly to the storm sewer. Then they are criticized for allowing the streets to flood. The parameters that they set have been successful in most cases. It might not make sense to over react.
