Flash flood hits east end
A flash flood sent debris and muck into East End homes last Tuesday, Sep. 26. Rains filled a river around the 13 mile marker above the bridge and into the street and surrounding houses. A neighbor called Betty Kalipi at 5:40 a.m. to warn her of the flood. “I told my husband ‘Get up and get your car out of the yard. It’s filling up!’” she said. Water also flooded the Wavecrest driveway.
Kalipi said it will take a month to clean up the damage. “Yeck what a mess,” she said. “I’ve lived here 37 years and this has never happened. I’m just gonna take it day by day, that’s all.”
