Tinman and his brother, Billy Joe Jack, live in southern California in an area that has a history of constantly being underwater from flooding. Their house has a basement, which means that it isn't really safe from flooding. If they need to displace 10 gallons of water a minute to keep the basement dry, and on average, according to past events, there would be water every day, how much water would they have to displace in a 30 day month?


None. Right now southern California is a hilly area, with various plants growing there. But scientific evidence shows that an ocean used to extend into southern California, meaning that millions of years ago it would be flooded quite often, basically being underwater from the ocean.
