I live in dearborn michigan yesterday our whole city got flooded because of a huge rain storm and some how all the sewers had a problem and backed up all the toxic dirty water into everyones homes! We were all on the news and many homes were destroyed! What can we do? I don't have house insurance all my drains aren't clogged up too! Even our citys highways were flooded and many cars drowned and people had to be rescued. Anyways what can i do with my home please help...i have no insurance because its too expensive and my home is 74 years old and every company told me if my house ever got damaged the pay wouldn't be a lot because it was probably too old and meant to break down soon...basically i would be paying alot of money for house insurance and the coverage would be low and wont be worth it. Anyways please help any advice?

So, do you own an old house in Michigan, or are you 13 with a small penis, or are you a convicted felon, or are you 15 and trying to send money through a Western Union in Canada.
Your questions tell me that you are a compulsive liar just looking for attention.

Even if you hire the lawyer and pay them the $20,000 retainer up front, this is most likely NOT a lawsuit you are going to win.
The city is NOT responsible for the weather; the fact that it hasn't happened before, is evidence that they could not have reasonably foreseen this event.
I'd suggest you talk to your church family and see if they can help you out.

Depending on the specific cause of the drain back up- yes you may have a lawsuit.
Yours is not an uncommon scenario.

Of course not. The city can't control the weather.

Oh yeah, this is really believable since two days ago you posted here that you're 13 years old.
