LAGRANGE, Ohio - Heavy rains left streets and basements flooded throughout northeast Ohio on Wednesday and Lorain County was no different.
Casey Hurst said the water was so deep around her home in LaGrange, her boys could swim in it. The inside of the house was flooded, too.
"Everything was floating in the garage," she said. "The breezeway was under water. I think there was a foot and a half in the breezeway. It was just coming into the house like a river."
Across the street, Loren St. Peter was drying out rugs on Thursday that were soaked in the flood.
"It just came so fast there was nothing you could do," she said. "Our neighbor was bailing (water) with cake pans."
The St. Peters had about four inches of water in their basement. She's not sure yet how much they lost, but she has found a silver lining.
"We had a pool in our basement," she said. "The neighbors spent $10,000 on their pool next door. We got it for free."
