Elmsford businesses hit hard by more flooding

Some business owners in Elmsford say today they have been flooded out for the third time in just over a week, and much like the waters, the cost of the damage and their frustration are rising rapidly. On a side street off of Route 9A, the floodwaters were about five-and-a-half feet deep, and the only way to get around is by boat. The source of the flooding is the Saw Mill River, which sends torrents of water into the streets every time it crests. Russell Burns, the owner of Bridge Auto Parts, says he wants elected leaders to fix the problem.Glen Preiser, the owner of Glen's Towing, says he's been contemplating shutting down his business, but he is reluctant to lay off his workers. "I can't keep digging into my savings," he says. "You can only do so much."
