PLUM, Pa. - Plum residents directed their anger and frustrations at the Plum Borough Council members Monday night after last month's heavy rains left many homes flooded.
People at the meeting were upset over what they call a lack of adequate response and help during flash flooding.
"I watched my car lift up out of the driveway over a wall and float away," Kathy Mautino described.
She also said she lost her washer, dryer, furnace, hot water tank, and freezer. She said she's angry with how the borough responded when she needed help. Many people claimed crews never showed up.
"We empathize with you."
That was the response from some Plum officials at the meeting.
Many residents were mad that dumpsters that were supposed to be provided never showed up.
Borough officials said their crews are still trying to catch up with cleaning, repairing or replacing storm sewers.
