Flash floods streets, basements

An estimated 4.5 inches of heavy rain fell quickly Sunday evening beginning around 8:30 p.m. causing flash floods along streets and emptying into several Center area basements.
Neighbors Joyce Freidig, who lives on North Center Avenue, and Cheryl and Daniel Cassidy, who live on Lincoln Avenue just around the corner, found their basements filling with water nearly to the rafters within minutes of the downpour.
