The article reports that Richmond, Virginia, sustained an estimated $60 million in damages, including disabled and destroyed public infrastructure, after torrential rain brought on by Tropical Storm Gaston triggered severe flooding in parts of the city. The worst damage occurred in the historic Shockoe Bottom area of the city, which sits near the James River and is known for its trendy bars and restaurants. City officials declared about 20 blocks of the Shockoe Bottom area uninhabitable after being soaked by a torrent of debris-laden and bacteria-carrying flood-water.
