Rocky Hill News Flood Damage
Local Rocky Hill News - Channel 6, reports on the weekend rain causing basement floods throughout the area. Cleanup crews respond to several calls including flooded basements, leaky roofs, sump pump failures, and many other flood damage situations such as water seeping through walls.
One Rocky Hill homeowner allowed news crews to enter, giving us a first-hand look at flood damage in their home. As you can see, the 4-feet of standing water in their basement is a significant problem. You never know what debris, chemicals, or pathogens accompany flood waters.
