Greenburgh residents fearful of another storm

Residents in Greenburgh are on edge Friday, fearful that another storm will flood their already damaged homes.

Heavy rains earlier this week caused the Saw Mill River to overflow, flooding many homes in the neighborhood. Sanitation workers have picked up about 30,000 pounds of debris on Babbit Court in the past two days.

Greenburgh had secured grant money a few years ago to help homeowners raise their foundations. Town officials say they are calling on the state and federal government to ask for money to help flood victims with their losses. However, many residents say they want money to be spent on preventing the river from overflowing.
