People in Valley City clean up flooded mess

Posted: Updated:

Dozens of basements are flooded from the storm mother nature dumped on Valley City.
People in town say they have never seen so much rain fall in such a short amount of time.

While these pictures show you just how much rain fell on Valley City,
Blair and Kaycee can tell you just how intense it was.

"I was so scared. I curled up in my ottoman," says Kaycee Smith.

These are just a few photos of their house and Justin Thorntun is left cleaning up what mother nature left.

"I had never seen it rain so hard and so quick," says Thorntun.

Don Enger's lived here for 35 years and was shocked to see how damaged many properties got.

"When you see where the water level was and when you see pictures you can't fathom what happened here," says Enger,

The storm destroyed Casey Triebold's garage.

"It pulled the darts right out of the wall," says Triebold.

And furnished basement.

"My husband was saying about $5,000-$10,000," says Triebold.

Kay Johnson woke up to an unwanted pool in her backyard.

"We had 2 sump pumps running and of course one failed," says Johnson.

At Valley City State's University field house, locker rooms, weight rooms, classrooms, filled with water.

"It was terrible," says Doug Hamilton, who does maintenance at the University.

And while it was the rain waters that caused most of the damage in Valley City, people say it was hail that knocked out this car window.

"You can see it shattered right here," says Thorntun.

And while the town continues to clean up the wet mess, they pray they don't have to fight another storm tonight.
