Cleveland drone company documents Metroparks flooding

Surveying the aftermath of this week's flooding was a sight to see from the ground -- but what if you got a birds' eye view?

One Cleveland business did just that at the Big Met golf course in the Rocky River Reservation -- and the video their drone-mounted cameras captured is pretty amazing.

The Rocky River was angry that day, unleashing her fury on Big Met Golf Course.

"We've had some flooding issues in the past, but nothing like we saw this week," said Mark Pucky with the Cleveland Metroparks.

This was the view above the course. The flood turned the course into one huge water hazard.

Michael Hach and Anthony Serio from Cleveland Aerial Media captured the footage using a drone mouted camera.

"We had no idea it was that bad," Hach said. "We saw it when we were driving, but as we got up in the air and were looking at our first-person view, it blew our minds away."

Most of the water you see here has receded, but as nice as the course looks today, it's still waterlogged.

"We'll take another trip through the golf course down here at Big Met tonight, analyze it, see where we stand," Pucky said. "We'll post updates through the Cleveland Metroparks website."
