Flooding devastates basement condo

The stories coming in from flooding in the surroundings of Louisville, Kentucky, are heartbreaking. iReporters are showing us what the scene is really like.

 

iReporter rglouisville witnessed severe damage to the basement of his own condo building. He documented waterlogged cars and a flooded-out basement unit , and said his neighbors were at home when the storm came through. The water burst through their sliding door and into their home, overturning a dumpster in its path. The residents had to basically swim out of the unit to escape.

 

Photos from another person living in the complex, Daniel Dermitt, show the extent of the damage done to the interior of the unit. A refrigerator is overturned and debris lines the walls. Dermitt said the water came within a few inches of completely filling the condo, adding that the complex prides itself on its high and dramatic ceilings.

 

Losing a home in this manner is hard to imagine, and even harder to swallow. The iReport images give us a window onto the damage that we might otherwise not see. Thanks to rglouisville and Dermitt for sharing their photos. We wish everyone the best of luck, and encourage readers to post their thoughts below. If you've been affected by the floods, we invite you to share your story as well.

During the time of disaster such as flood the government should extend financial assistance to the afflicted individual. This is the time the they needed us most. Extend a helping hand as much as possible, similar to this, . Bill Clinton made a stop in North Korea, to negotiate with Kim Jong Il for the release of two American journalists that had been imprisoned there, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, and the North Korean leader granted them amnesty through a special pardon and they were released, no cash advances for bail at all. Apparently, giving Chris Wallace on Fixed News a hiding wasn't enough when it comes to Bill Clinton proving his Presidential mettle, and didn't even need payday loans no faxing to get the job done.

The young men are still under Police Custody awaiting a so-called trial. We just want the world to know the injustice being perpetrated by Muslims cabal in Nigeria. One of the soldiers wore a Liard-an Islamic armband charm. These soldiers shot at the door and broke windows louvers before gaining access to house to arrest these Christians young men.
