Flooding in Morgantown Damages Buildings

Posted: Updated:

The Morgantown Fire Department went to about 15 flooded homes or apartment buildings in the past two days because of bursting pipes and sprinkler systems.

Crossroads Property Rescue works restores buildings after such disasters.

Their staff said Morgantown wasn't the only city flooded from frozen pipes.

John Wood, from Crossroads Property Rescue explained, "Typically in a general month, we'll get a bout 40 to 45 claims. Yesterday alone we had almost 150 claims in one day. So our guys were basically out until about 2 o'clock this morning just taking call, after call, after call. And it started again this morning."
