Reports of flooded basements in metro Detroit

After heavy rain overnight, there are multiple reports of basements flooding across metro Detroit.

Water is backing up into basements, and according to the president of the condo association, it isn't the first time it happened. He said it happened in 2011, 2014, in July of this year and once again this month.
