Some in Island section of Trenton still assessing weekend flood damage
Residents who live in the Island section of Trenton showed up at the West Ward Firehouse again Tuesday so they could be bussed to their homes to assess the damage from the weekend floods.
One family rushed home Tuesday to make sure their pets, including 32 snakes, survived the floods. Rick Peoples says his snakes did not react well to the flood fall-out, and they could be in serious danger without electricity. Many residents who returned home to start cleaning up the mess found cracked foundations and muddy basements.
Emergency crews were on hand to continue cleaning up the flooded streets. Many neighbors will not be able to stay in their homes overnight because the gas and electricity have not been turned on. They will be able to permanently return once the power is turned back on.
