The LA Flood Project returns to Twitter this Thursday with a week long event. Join in on Twitter as the rains reach epic proportions. To participate, merely tweet your experience of the Flood with the #laflood hashtag. Follow @LAFloodProject to find out all the updates on the state of the Flood. You don’t have to be in LA to play along, but your tweets need to say you are. More information and a map of LA with the latest flood narratives and monologues are here:The LA Flood Project site
