Bath Township cleans up after storms

BATH TOWNSHIP -- Bath Township in Summit County suffered some of the worst damage in Monday night's storms.

The heavy rain washed out parts of Shaw Road and snapped a bridge in half, sending it down into the Yellow Creek.

Neighbors like Amy Crawford were shocked to come home to a flooded house.

"Our driveway, which now looks like a beach, was completely covered in water. The front yard was totally a pond. It looked like you couldn't even see the grass, and out this way there was a white-looking rapid," said Crawford.

A lot of that water ended up in Crawford's basement.

It then flowed down the street, taking out a driveway and filling up a garage with about two feet of water.

"That's what saved the rest of the house. He opened garage door, and it went out the back door toward the creek because it was running in the front yard and running through here," said Dan Lloyd from Lloyd Construction.

It's unlike anything these neighbors have ever seen.

"We've had storms before but this is historically the worst one ever," said Crawford.
