Yes, Colonial Cove Subdivision did flood during the “Great Flood” of August 12-15, 2016, and flooded to a height around 5 feet I’ve been told and witnessed, see flood water level in the collage photo below arrow pointing to water height. When the Amite River reached 46.2 feet, the water had to go somewhere.
