Neighborhood floods after Friday storms

PINCONNING, MI (WNEM) -

Sometimes when it rains it pours and when it pours in Pinconning it floods.

Greg Mesecar lives on Fourth Street in Pinconning. He said a heavy rain like the one on Friday will cause his family problems.

"After it starts draining out it's pretty much gone and ends up in our basement. Sump pump is already working. Water is running through it now, but there will be more of it by the time nightfall gets here," he said.

Rebecca Streich feels his pain. She's one of his neighbors on Fourth Street and constantly deals with small ponds of water around her house.

"It's there all the time. It never goes away, even on a 100 degree day," Streich said.

She said despite the street being a small stretch of road, it still gets a lot of traffic.

Both Streich and Mescar attribute the flooding problems to the city's plumbing and despite their complains, the problems remain the same.

"They said it was our issue. Every time we go up there they try to put the blame back on us, saying that it's our problem. That we've gotta fix it," Mesecar said.
