WAYNE - For residents in Wayne, the receding waters have been a good sign, but for many, flooding remains a problem.

On closed-down Ryerson Avenue, volunteers have set up tents, allowing residents to pick up supplies, food and clothing after losing much of their possessions in the flood.

Volunteer Yesenia Pucheta says she started out two weeks ago with just a few trays of food, but the operation has since grown larger. She says it is the donations from the community that have helped the operation expand and help more people.

Volunteers will be handing out more supplies on Ryerson Avenue tomorrow, and they say donations will also be accepted.
