PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

Many Parma residents living near Ridge and Pearl Road are cleaning up after heavy rains flooded their basements Friday evening. Water and sewage flooded basements on Chesterfield Avenue, leaving a smelly mess behind.

Lori Mitchell had clean laundry downstairs in her basement when the flooding started. 

"I came down and looked and that's what was left. It was full and I went over here, it was leaking through by the furnace, but other than that it's never done this before," she said. 

A few doors down, Ryan Durichko swept up water in his basement. We asked him how he was going to clean it all up. 

"Just a lot of patience, a lot of sweeping water, and using this great sub-pump I have for the pool outside," he said.

Residents hope the rain holds off for the rest of the night and there's no more flooding. They say it's not a fun start to the Fourth of July weekend.
