Bridgeport neighborhoods still cleaning up from Sept. flood

Posted: Updated:
BRIDGEPORT -

Some Bridgeport neighborhoods are still cleaning up from floodwaters that hit the area weeks ago.

Nearly 7 inches of rain in less than three hours caused major damage. One area still struggling is the Renwick Place neighborhood.

Christine Voight is among the victims, after her basement flooded and damaged many valuable items, including her car.

"Sewage just came backing up out of toilets, out of tubs, out of pipes on top of everything, we get another backup with the sewage all over the place."

Another neighbor has a cracked foundation now in their home.

There is an estimated $2.7 million in damage, according to the city. 

Some Renwick homeowners say the city is not doing enough to help them.

The Bridgeport Emergency Operations Center says the city is doing its part to gather information on the damage to send to FEMA.

The state will send all information to FEMA on Monday in hopes of getting some financial help.
