Rising floodwaters after recent rain


SOME TORRENTIAL RAIN MOVED THROUGH…AND YET TONIGHT…FLOODWATER S ARE ON THE RISE ON THE NORTH SIDE. OUR MARY MILZ IS LIVE IN THE WARFLEIGH NEIGHBORHOOD.. WHICH IS JUST ACROSS THE RIVER.. FROM HOLIDAY PARK.. WHERE MORE THAN A DOZEN HOMES ARE EFFECTED. WE’RE ALONG THE 6400 BLOCK OF RIVERSIDE DRIVE… HOMES HERE.. LEVY AND RIVER THERE.. THE WATER HAS GONE DOWN SOME, BUT STILL THREE FEET OR SO AT HIGHEST. ROAD STILL CLOSED. WE WANT TO SHOW YOU WHAT THIS LOOKS LIKE FROM DRONE CAM 13…. AT LEAST A DOZEN HOMEOWNERS CAN’T GET OUT THEIR FRONT DRIVEWAYS, AGAIN THE WATER IS UP OVER THE CURB AND INTO THEIR YARDS. FORTUNATELY, MOST DO HAVE ALLEY ACCESS BEHIND THEIR HOMES. THE PEOPLE WE TALKED TO SAY THIS IS NOT NORMAL… THEY SAY THE STREET WAS FINE SATURDAY WHEN THE RAIN WAS HEAVIEST… THE WATER STARTED COMING UP SUNDAY. THE RIVER DEFINITELY RUNNING HIGH… DRONE 13 SHOWS YOU JUST HOW HIGH. AND THAT’S INITIALLY WHAT HAD PEOPLE WORRIED. FEARED AN ISSUE WITH THE LEVY “… WE WERE PANICKED AFTER FIRST B/C NOT KNOW IF WAS A FAST MOVING FLOOD OR SLOW MOVING AND THEN WENT DOWN TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND SAW IT EARLIER OR THE DAY BEFORE SO WE WERE LESS CONCERNED BUT FIRST THOUGHT THE LEVY HAD BREACHED OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT …” DPW AND CITIZENS HAVE BEEN OUT HERE…INVESTIGATING. AT LAST CHECK, WE WERE TOLD THINKING BLOCKED STORM LINE. BUT DON’T KNOW FOR SURE. NO IDEA HOW LONG ROADS OPEN.. WATER GOES DOWN. IN TERMS OF PROPERTY DAMAGE… WORRIES AND CONCERNS ABOUT WATER IN THE BASEMENT ADLIB TOSS TO ANGELA IT HAS BEEN A CLOUDY DAY AND IT WILL STAY MOSTLY CLOUDY OVERNIGHT. TUESDAY
