Must See Video: Heavy rains flood back of Morton business

Posted: Updated:


Check out this video a viewer shared from Tuesday's flooding in Morton.

Jeana Harbison posted this video from the back of Morton Supplies. While it might look like a river that spilled it's banks, it's actually looking at the company's trucking bay. The back parking lot was under at least a foot of water. Employees tell us a nearby drainage ditch filled up and overflowed onto their property, with water knee deep in some places.

"Eventually it came up over 98 and went way back there. I've been working here since 1985 and I've never seen it that bad. I've seen it pretty bad, but never that bad," says employee Garland York.

The water has since receded.
