PARMA, OH (WOIO) - Tuesday's rain is putting a northeast Ohio neighborhood on edge. People living along one Parma street see flooding nearly every time there's heavy rain.
Many of these residents have lost thousands of dollars in recent years, due to all the water coming into their homes. They took their battle to court and lost. Now, they're constantly worried that flooding will happen all over again.
Flooding on Stormes Drive in Parma has been a headache for Dominic Grassi's mother. Like many along this street, damage over the years has cost her big bucks.
"The first flood in 2011 -- it wiped me out. What a way to retire," said Ott.
A few years ago, some residents sued the city of Parma. The lawsuit accused the city of causing floods on Stormes Drive by neglecting a storm-water detention basin, but that suit was dismissed.
The city says it has spent millions cleaning sewers and working on improvement projects and continues to do so.
Still, when there's rain in the forecast, panic is a common feeling.
Some residents say they simply don't have any more money to spend on cleaning and replacing things. They're simply hoping for the best and bracing for the worst...again.
