This case involves residents of a small town in Alabama who suffered severe flooding and subsequent property damages after a hurricane. It was alleged that a local petrochemical refinery complex dammed up a bayou without warning nearby residents. It was further alleged that the refinery purposely pushed floodwater away from their plant and into the surrounding town knowing that it would cause severe property damage to residents. A damages expert estimated that the town suffered approximately $75 million in total property damages. A petrochemical refinery plant manager was sought to speak to best practices when dealing with potential flooding and whether or not there is a duty to collaborate with surrounding communities.
