New York Mills basement floods to four feet
NEW YORK MILLS - This spring's record-setting flooding hit home for New York Mills residents Robert and Karen Thompson, when their basement was flooded to four feet.
As it continued to rain heavily on Monday, March 23, the runoff started pouring into their basement at about 1 a.m. According to Karen, the water was about ankle deep when she first saw it, and it rose to four feet within a couple of hours.
"My washer, dryer, and freezer were all floating," Karen recalls.
