There was record rainfall in southern Maine in the Spring of 2006. Many neighborhoods, away from the coastline in our community, were underwater. There was significant damage to many roads caused by culvert washouts. This was said to be a "once in 100 year flooding". Ironically, many of these same areas experienced flooding the following year in 2007.
