Dunnavant's Mall,Binford Court Housing Units, Heart of Huntsville Mall,the area around The Huntsville Times, The Leeman Ferry Rd around the Parkway,Hobbs Island Road at south Parkway and Fisher St in South Huntsville with water coming up to the SCI building,the Big Spring lagoon all the way back to the Huntsville utilities building including their basemant. All the area where the VBC sits today, parts of owens Cross Roads and New Hope and people still build where it's not a matter of if but when.These folks gamble when they won't consider flood insurance. The Huntsville Library has a picture of the flood of approx 1875 showing the whole Big Spring area South flooded so it may be true about the hundred year flood.

Was Binford Court the apartments that you could see from Governors Dr. on the right side of the road past the hospital heading for Guntersville, they may have been off of Whitesburg Dr.? I remember seeing these abandoned apts., that were vacated around 1965-1966, what was the name of that complex and the history of why they were abandoned?

Sounds like you'rs just another lazy stinking nasty knegrow who's pissed off because he can't get free stuff from balack obammycare. Soon you'll soon be in HELL with Trayvon Martin & Big Mikey Brown & Freddy Gray and the rest of the blacks. The Holy Bile clearly says that them peoples with woolly hair can't get into Heaven, so it looks like you're damned to burn in HELL.

Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhist, Hindus, Scientologist, and even magic underwear wearing Mormons believe that the blacks are evil and doomed to Hell. If I were black I'd have to kill myself in hopes of coming back as anything but a Hell bound black.

God commanded Noah to build The Ark so He could drown all the blacks in the Great Flood. The 1973 flood of the Flint River is a reminder to us that God wants to drown them peoples in order to stop their evil race from propagating.

That explains why the blacks are afraid of water.
They won't swim in it and they won't bathe in it either.
