Flooding in Norwalk
We had a rough week in Norwalk, Oh. There were a number of large storms that went through the area on Thursday night and Friday and many areas of the city became flooded. We were the lucky ones. There were parts of the city that were devastated. We only had an inch of standing water in our basement. All the other neighbors on our corner received 6-12 inches in their basements. I just kept watching the storm in amazement. There was so much lightning and such an incredible amount of water. I have never seen anything like that before. The last time they had a significant amount of rain like this in Norwalk was 1969. Here are some pictures of the basement and the street.
