The problem:: Smelly runoff from a nearby gas station floods a Towson home. The back story:: When it rains in Towson, it floods at Jerry Cornett's house. Cornett lives on Yakona Road, downhill from Porter's Loch Raven Hess gas station on East Joppa Road. His basement has flooded several times when the pump that catches runoff from the gas station gets overloaded. Each time, the Hess Corp. paid for the damage to Cornett's house, he said. But about three weeks ago, the company told him that it would not pay for recent flooding, blaming the problem on an inactive sump pump in his neighbor's vacant home.

ON THE NIGHT after Christmas, the three of them stood outside the Grace and Hope Mission, on Gay Street around the corner from The Block, with the temperature plunging like something thrown from the top of a building. "I thank God for this," said Danny Cornett, pointing to the mission doorway. "It's a blessing." "Yes, it is," said Terry Evans. You could see their breath in the dark. It came out of them between shivers. Danny Cornett's brother Ron stood a few feet away, near a plastic lawn bag full of belongings, but he wasn't saying anything.
