WILTON - Some Wilton homeowners say the saturated ground caused their basements to remain flooded Wednesday, despite the stop in rainfall.

The Wilton Fire Department spent most of Wednesday helping residents pump water out of their homes in order to prevent further damage to their belongings. Pam Mannes and Diane Buhler, both of Wilton, say they hope their appliances in the basement aren't destroyed by the flooding.

Homeowners say they're not expecting the water to dry out for a few days. Then, they say, they'll focus on mold prevention.
