People in Edgewater are still feeling the effects of Friday’s storm.
“The water rolled down the window, so it must have short-circuited it,” says Naomi Kroon, owner of the affected car. “And there is debris inside.”
The flooded pond turned into a skating rink as temperatures plummeted Friday evening.
The ice had covered several inches of the wheels and even covered the cab of the semi truck.
Residents say now is a game of rushing and waiting.
“We filed a complaint. We couldn’t get anyone out because it was left in the flood waters,” says Gabriel Mariani, owner of another affected car. “It’s still a sheet of ice, so I don’t know if they’ll come out today.”
By 10 a.m. Tuesday, the temperature had warmed enough to turn the ice into a big pile of slush.
The crew salted and then cleared the parking lot.
Most of the cars have been totaled and are in an undesirable situation just a few days after Christmas.
but most are fine Some are looking forward to their new car.
“I’m going to buy a house, so it’s financially difficult, I’m fine,” says Mariani. “I’m having a baby soon and I wasn’t looking forward to putting him in the back seat of a two-door Jeep.”
Most of these cars are expected to add up as many will not be turned on as residents hope to see some movement in their claims today.
