CRYSTAL LAKE, Ill. -- It has been a very long couple of weeks for people who live in areas hit by severe storms.
In Crystal Lake, it started raining heavily around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 23. At least a few trees were down and neighbors said it just came out of nowhere. Then the power outage occurred 1654 homes went dark no electric. The water started to back up in the homes in some cases one foot deep.
This home had about 1 inch of water in basement. In the picture you will see that we were able to puncture holes in the wall to aid in drying process. During the drying process we were able to save the walls and saved the customer in the cost of reconstruction.
