Anderson Cooper scenario?
No, I believe it. My in-laws live a few blocks from there and there's been a few rare occasions that the end of their street (despite looking fairly level grounded) has gotten a foot or two of water. Those old drainage systems just can't keep up. In that picture you can see that it's deep enough to submerge the curb plus a few inches of that fire hydrant.
