GROSSE POINTE PARK, Mich. – Contractors hired by city officials in Grosse Pointe Park are using a front end loader to help clear streets of resident’s belongings ruined by the floods.
A couple of miles away on Detroit’s east side, Janet Anderson’s basement flooded two weeks ago. Like many others, she was forced to buy new appliances.
Less than two weeks later, Thursday’s brief storm brought more water to the area, flooding her basement again. Residents said they’re exhausted, stressed and unsure of what they can do in their situation.
Several FEMA crews were in Detroit and Dearborn Thursday. They visited Grosse Pointe Park Friday. It’s unclear what federal assistance will bring.
Residents across Metro Detroit are now worried every time it rains.
