Elmsford residents sick of Saw Mill River flooding

Saturated grounds and heavy rainfall had many Elmsford residents on edge today.

Residents on Babbitt Court say they're preparing for more rain and possible flooding after more than 6 feet of water took over their properties when Irene hit last week.

The cleanup was almost complete when it started to rain again, putting fear and frustration into the minds of the neighbors who had just been through so much.

Some residents say they're even considering moving so they don't have to deal with the stress anymore. Others are calling on state politicians and the Army Corps of Engineers to fix the Saw Mill River.
