How badly did the Schuylkill River flood?!?! Were homes flooded? Isn't Manayunk near East Falls? Like five minutes away? I was born and lived on Henry Avenue the first years of my life (Feltonville, the family pride and joy, is much further east down Roosevelt where my forefathers once thought they were a big deal. LOL). @Louis, aren't you from Manayunk? Or am I misremembering.My stepsister lives at the top of the hill that is the Manayunk neighborhood in Philly; she’s ok but lower down towards the river it is catastrophic. I’ve never seen the Schuykill river flood like that in my whole life and I was born in ‘56. A friend in Brooklyn is staying with friends after being flooded and her apt is up a flight of stairs in a brownstone!
Nobody predicted this kind of damage here.
