North Olmsted residents demand answers after flooding

NORTH OLMSTED -- Thursday afternoon's rain is causing even more flooding for folks in North Olmsted.

Many are fed up and demanding answers from the city.

Water poured in the patio door of the Kevin Danchik's home, destroying the walls, floor and everything in between.

"You can't keep it in because it will just mold, and everything will start stinking in a couple of weeks," said Danchik.

It's even worse in the basement.

Every time Linda Danchik vacuums up the water, it comes right back.

On Monday, three feet of water damaged precious belongings including her wedding dress, which has been hanging for 32 years.

"It just kept coming and coming and coming. I'm watching it come up, and it was coming up in the bathroom there," recalls Linda.

It's a common problem up and down the street.

The bigger the flood damaged pile outside on the curb, the higher the water inside the basement, and it's not the first time.

"What's wrong with that, our city can't handle water for whatever reason. I don't want answers or hear that they will look into it, I want real fixes. This is my family home," said homeowner Monica Lopez.

While they wait for a meeting with the mayor at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, they're cleaning and trying to stay in good spirits.

"It's the way I deal with it. If you get too mad, you're not going to be able to do it," said Kevin.
