Following last week's flooding, the City of Charleston is continuing its push for a $146.3 million federal stimulus grant to build a network of drainage tunnels and pumps to eliminate flooding around the Medical University of South Carolina and the Crosstown Expressway.

A decision isn't expected by mid- February, so here's hoping downtown doesn't become the next lost city of Atlantis by then.
