Some people in the Valley aren't just seeing flooding on roads, driveways or bridges, because the water is coming into their basements.

Bridgewater resident Clayton Towers spent Tuesday soaking up the water with towels or draining it with hoses.

Towers says he has about four or five spots where water is leaking into his basement.

Right now, he thinks he'll be okay, but it depends on the weather.

"Got a lot of stuff down here in the basement and we don't want it to get wet, so we're hoping that we don't get any big ones coming in on top of all this. The ground's saturated, that's real encouragement for flooding," says Towers.

If you live in an area prone to flooding, emergency officials say it's best to wake up a few times through the night to check to see if water is getting into your home. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
