Rain floods homes, businesses

From Camp to Salem and beyond, April 11 drowned the area with more torrential rainfall as people scrambled to save their homes and businesses. Tim Leslie's pharmacy built a blockade of sandbags in an effort to fend off the field of water inches from his back door. Across the raging town branch, sandbags wouldn't stop the water from making its way inside and filling the Salem Style Shop with nearly two feet of water. In Camp, belongings washed away and homes flooded as the roads turned into swift rivers.
