Residents Cleaning Up Mess Left By Wednesday's Storm
Filer, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) It was like a tornado hit. That's how Amanda Bohr describes her daycare after a storm ripped through filer last night.
Residents in Hagerman are also cleaning up the mess left by the storm.
Bohr explains, "you could hear it from just going into the vents in the basements...you could hear it just running in, it was so cold because of the hail too, my feet were so numb, I didn't know what to think."
Questions remain for Amanda Bohr, the owner of Leaping Lillies Daycare.
Bohr adds, "if it collects mold, I can't have the children in here and if any more rain comes, we could flood again because it just comes in the back door.
As the water rushed through the back door and pushed its way to the front, everything in its path suffered some form of water damage.
"My basement filled six feet, my top level filled two feet. So I lost a good majority of my baby stuff, the pack and plays, the cribs, the changing table, a lot of food," adds Bohr.
Filer residents all across town are trying to clean up the damage.
Sgt. John Darnall, Filer Police Department says, "we've had 11 residential homes and 5 businesses that are seeing moderate to severe flooding and we've had one report of a sinkhole."
Meanwhile, those in Hagerman experienced sub severe winds Wednesday night.
The National Weather Service reports the winds were between 40 and 50 miles per hour...leaving owners of this store with quite a mess to clean.
The children who attend Leaping Lillies were moved to a local church on a temporary basis.
