"In this area, in the places where there are good storm sewerage facilities, the street is not flooded. That's amazing, isn't it? Well, it should be noted that as a rule, those facilities were made by those who live in houses in this street," answered user Digital Life.

The user also criticized city officials for blocked storm sewerage facilities. "The water is knee-deep, and it does not disappear. Is it not possible to build good storm sewerage facilities?" wrote the social network user.
