Flooding is a real inconvenience and a real problem for parents who take their kids to Living Waters Daycare in Rochester.
On Wednesday morning, parents had to scramble and find sitters for their kids when Living Waters was forced to shutdown.
"It was hectic. First day of school, we have a daycare full of children. Kids going back and forth to school. It's a disaster for us today," said Esther Donaldson, Director of Living Waters.
Reginald Manning works at the daycare. He was passing by Tuesday night when he saw water pouring in the back of the building.
"It was like I came by, I couldn't believe it, I rode my bicycle by because I usually check on the church and I looked and there was a whole pond in the backyard," said Manning.
Manning used a sump pump to get as much water out as quickly as possible.
"The pump sucks up the water and shoots it out of another hose, so it sucks up at one end and goes out the other end, so we put it in the backyard over there," said Manning.
But the damage was done. Books and artwork were destroyed. Rugs dripping wet and it'll be an inconvenience for parents for who knows how long.
"Some parents didn't even get the news so we had to stand around the building and let them know. It was very uncomfortable for our parents here." said Donaldson.
At this time, Donaldson says they do not know when the daycare will reopen.
