The affected homeowners expressed gratitude for the thousands of unnamed volunteers who came to their rescue over the weekend.
Clark Hoffman, who lives across the street from McManus, had a fresh crew from the Stillwater Academy for troubled youths on hand Tuesday pulling mud from his basement. The basement had filled to the ceiling with mud and water, coming within a foot of spilling onto the main floor.
"Over the weekend it was a phenomenal volunteer turnout," he said. "Obviously since the workweek has started the groups now are going to be smaller, but there are still groups coming out and we continue to be grateful for all of their efforts."
Hoffman said he wishes more could have been done to prevent the flood.
"The city folks here are good folks, they were trying to start the process, I just don't think they acted quickly enough," he said. "I think their slowness in response contributed to it."
