Haltom City is fine. It's a tiny area that is along a creek in far north Haltom City, where people should not have built or bought in the first place, that is getting the flooding. I live a half mile from all this. In those areas, this same creek has flooded practically every year at least once for the past dozen years or so. Yet people still move in, buy, build, or otherwise just stay there with the unreasonable expectation that it will not happen again. Finally, now, some of the folks in the mobile home park (keyword is MOBILE) are starting to question why they continue to live on a mudbank. Gotta feel for these folks, but at some point they need to realize living next to an urban Texas creek is not the best situation. Vast majority of the flooding is contained in the floodplain and affecting only golf courses, baseball fields, parks and other floodplain-type uses.
remember the story of the wise man who built his house upon the rock and the foolish man who nbuilt his house upon the sand that is just the case here and it proves the fact that you cant fix stupid
If you are a WISE man and build your house on rock,the foolish man will likely see an 18 wheeler full of those rocks barreling down on him doing 95 mph on hwy 114
