Neighborhoods Drying Out Following Sunday’s Storm

BERKLEY (WWJ) – A neighborhood in Berkley is drying out after being swamped by a brief — but strong — thunderstorm Sunday evening.

“If you went down our street, you were taking your — well, your life or your car, into your own hands — because it would have been stalling and the water was literally going over the curb,” said Larry, who declined to give his last name. “There was a little bit of water in a number of basements, including mine.”

City crews came in and cleared the storm drains — and the water receded.

Neighborhoods in several other communities, including Southfield, were also hard hit by the storms. Power outages were also reported.
