Photograph of a storm-flooded residential neighborhood with 3 houses visible and more houses indicated behind them. Four men are in front of the houses standing on patches of ground elevated a bit above the flood line. Two men wear high boots, 2 wear shorts. One man is holding a long wooden plank, perhaps to be used as a walkway.
