The National Weather Service said it should be dry on Monday. They said the Fox River at Burlington is at minor flood stage of 11.7 feet. It's expected to drop below flood stage by Tuesday. The Fox River at New Munster remains at 15.3 feet and will drop to moderate flood stage on Tuesday.
That's good news for homeowners like Jay Orndorf. He returned to his home on Main Street to assess the damage caused by the flooding and begin the task of cleaning up. He said the basement of his house sustained major damage.
"I just had about 5 feet of water in my basement. And unfortunately I wasn't smart enough to clean it out before the water really got in," he said.
Orndorf pulled everything out of his basement and laid it on his driveway to dry out. He's trying to salvage as much as possible.
"My big thing with my shelving units. They stack on each other. These will stack up on each other and make shelves. And the books, and some clothes and some of my tools and stuff."
