I've just returned from evacation and made the decision that hurricane evacations are something my health just can't take anymore. I read statistics about Petal on e-podunk it seemed to have low crime and. affordable housing, I was wondering about FLOODING, are the streets prone to flash flooding , does the area have a history of riverine flooding, I flooded in Katrina and rebulit but the prospect of doing again is more than I can take. I'm trying to stay as close to my son as possible who is student at LSU . ( The Baton Rouge has some flood issues..plus housing is not as economical). A Sturdy age restricted retirement community does anyone know of anything remotely similar to this?
