Reporters really add nothing to news, they just interject unnecessarily.

They stop the brainwashing from going off the rails.

Actually, I don't think this is from the hurricane. This news is from 2016 when the Brazos River went over its banks and flooded parts of Rasharon. Although neat concept.

Yeah -- i would think that a hurricane dropping a lot of water down is going to have the same effect on the inside as it does on the outside.. water is going to roll off your house and because the ground is soaked anyway, it's just going to pool up inside the dam as well... don't think this would work so great for a hurricane as it did for a river flood...

If you had a sump and the power never went out it might work, but that's a long shot.

Wow, this is a cool idea. Glad it worked out for him. Imagine how smug he must've been, having neighbors over for dinner, when the only thing to talk about is how much damage the flood caused.

This thing is really cool, just a water-filled rubber tube that sits there and blocks the flood. .

More than one tube internally I think, for structural support and probably resiliance against failure of a single tube.

On the real it sounds like paid advertisement but good to know that options are out there for any scenario.

When someone demonstrates something works they're still labeled a conspiracy nut?
