The latest and greatest on CNN iReport, brought to you by Team iReport.
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.
