The Flood

So today we had a flood in our basement. It started around 2:00 in the afternoon with a crazy flash-flood, and pretty soon we had these huge hailstones falling too. The hail lasted for about 20 minutes and the rain was about an hour, but it did some serious damage. On the highway that is right by our house, the drains were not working right, so there was a river flowing down the street that our backyard is up against. The water hit the curb and jumped over it, down into our backyard. The window well in our laundry room was filled up with about three feet of water, which was slowly leaking into the basement. Overall, we probably got about two inches on the floor. Plus the water was muddy and may possibly been partially sewage because it was overflowing the sewage drains. Gross. You can see the local news coverage here.

  1. That stinks! Did it flood the entire basement? Is the insurance covering it?


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
