Water rushed down the street, flooding nearby homes and basements.

Homeowner Don Leatherbarrow invited CBS3 crews inside of his home to see the damage as his basement is now completely flooded.

“It’s a disaster. There’s at least two-and-a-half feet of water in the basement,” said Leatherbarrow.

The water department shut off the water and authorities have blocked off the road.
