CHICAGO (WLS) — Help is being made available to people once again cleaning up from flooding.
Heavy rain led to flash flooding Sunday, leaving some south suburban neighborhoods under water and drivers stranded.
Calumet City was among the areas hardest hit.
At 7 a.m., people can come to the Calumet City Public Library, where a Disaster Recovery Center has been set up to find out what assistance is available to them.
Heavy rain led to flash flooding, in the south suburbs, leaving entire neighborhoods underwater and drivers stranded. Some places saw more than half a foot of rain in just a matter of hours.
From Chopper 7, you could see streets completely underwater.
Firefighters, waded through those high waters to rescue stranded drivers who had to abandon their cars.
Many business and residents, like Jovan Davison, are now dealing with flooded homes.
“You lose a lot of your things that are memories that you can’t get back. And this is, like I said, the third time this has happened to me in this house in the last three months,” Davison said.
Tom Ksiezak said flood precautions in his basement weren’t enough as they had nearly three feet of water in the lowest level of their home.
