Jeff Yeager, an employee of Ganley Ford in Barberton, says one of their parking lots was so badly flooded they had to move approximately 75 vehicles to keep them clear of water damage.

Richard Johnson, who was paddling around the city streets Thursday morning in a canoe, said he has lived in Barberton for 10 years and has never seen the water this deep.

As for Keith Rogers, the water in his basement is up to the ceiling with approximately 10-12 inches in his back yard.
