Rockyford seeks disaster funding after torrential downpour

    In the wake of a torrential downpour that saw the streets of Rockyford flood over two inches Monday, the town has made applications for disaster funding in assisting nearly half the village’s homes suffering “phenomenal” damage.
    The heaven’s opened around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, July 13, dropping over five inches of water onto the town in a two hour window.

An army of restoration companies worked until the early morning hours of Tuesday pumping out toxic sewage that backed up as much as two feet in some homes.
