This is the back of my building where the ramp leads to the basement. You can see the brown, mucky water rose all the way to ground level!
They had some massive pumps running constantly to try and get rid of the water.
All these picture were taken by somebody in my office. I did not get near this.
Now, they are blowing air from the outside in to dry and manually air condition the building. It will take months for them to rip out and reconstruct the basement. I will miss my little runs to the deli for a soda or snack. :( Oh, and did I mention that they found E. coli bacteria in the water!! It may have been a little soon to return to the building. I think it will take awhile for things to return to normal around here. I'm just glad nobody was hurt in all this mess.
These are the blowers surrounding the building and they are also coming through windows and ceilings.Yesterday was my first day back to the office and this was what I saw in the parking garage.
