Could this have been prevented?

9 months ago over 200 trees were illegally removed from the forest behind my house without any regard to the effect that this would have on the surrounding area.

This is a view of the back of my house – shot at around 11am this morning. No question there was a lot of water coming out of the sky today as it was hurricane Irene – but the nagging question remains…if there had not been such a haphazard & irresponsible amount of deforestation occurring this year – would the flood have been anywhere near this bad?
