Flooding swamps Surrey homes
Several Surrey homes are under water after localized flooding in Cloverdale.
Water from heavy rains Monday overwhelmed storm drains near 68 Avenue and 188 Street.
"I've got about six inches of water in our basement right now," homeowner Ryan Caruso said.
He figures a company doing work in a development nearby may have disrupted the ability of the storm drains to function.
"There was damage done in the runoff pit," Caruso said.
"It can't drain any more to the city connection so it's just backing up into our houses."
The flooding has impacted local businesses, including a chiropractor's office.
Surrey was expected to receive up to 100 millimetres of rain Monday, as weekend snow gave way to a wet tropical weather system.
Isolated flooding was reported throughout Metro Vancouver.
