Mike Calls Frantic - Needs Help

Mike called me tonight about 8:30pm wanted to know if I could come over and help him out. He has 2 basement apartments that are flooded.

Fox59 reported that .09" of rain fell at 4:54pm Fox59 Report

When I got there, Mike proceeded to tell me that the street was completely flooded, that all the water from down the street ended right up to the corner and where his property sits. Mike said "It looked like a small lake". The water ran from the street to his property and then ran down the stairs into his basement apartment. Mike said its been years since this has happened. He said that the property had this problem and he thought he had fixed the problem with raising the driveway.

When I got into the apartment, I noticed the kitchen floor, it looked like a water bed. You step on it and the ripples went to the walls. The carpets still had puddles on it.

He asked if I would use the water vacuum and clean it up. Mike said he had been working on it since 5pm and needed a break.
I worked hard on it for a few hours until it was dry enough to put the fans out.

When I got home I was exhausted. I took a shower and went to bed. I fell right asleep. Normally, I would have been up till 4am.
