After the storm stopped and the city was half underwater, the alive citizens headed towards higher elevation. They concluded that some area was unfixable and had to be completly demolished, while other areas could be fixed but would also raise taxes as the insurance companies wouldn't pay to fix anything for the flood. but it was agreed. The areas that were still completely underwater were demolished, and the water was removed slowly over the course of a month through hard work and sunlight. The areas that could be fixed were fixed over the course of the next few years. Most sims have their houses back. Some areas of the city formed creeks of varying size, some looked disgusting and many wanted to fill them with cement. But the A.C.G.R.G fought for the little creeks to be transformed into canals, and after many debates.. and 2 years... Canals were made. There was one Creek too large that couldn't be made into a canal, it remains as a creek today.
There was some good news though, with the destruction of alot of roads, city planning mistakes could be fixed and traffic improved. Job demand was soothed by placing office parks over demolished suburbs, and the Highway system was expanded to more rural areas.
Here are some photo's of what I am talking about.
Of course, parks were rebuilt due to the A.C.G.R.G, some were fitted with canals.
There will be a teaser for the next update posted around 11pm PST tonight or tommorow
Thanks for the comments in advance.
