Salem homeowners focus on flooding concerns


SALEM - There is a lot of rain in the forecast for the week ahead, and parts of New Hampshire are getting ready for a potential flood threat.

In Salem, one woman said that she is bracing for the worst in the next 24 hours.

She is forced to vacuum and move boxes in her basement every time it rains.

"Before we go to bed, we'll do another vacuum before 9 p.m., and we'll get up in the middle of the night," Lisa Leblanc, a Salem homeowner, said. We'll do it at midnight and then every three and a half hours."

It wasn't something she has planned for when they bought their home.

"We have water coming into our basement, but we were not disclosed that information when we bought our home," she said.

Other neighbors said newcomers are learning the hard way.

"Since they put the city sewage system in, it helped out a lot," Everett Plante said. "That being said the sum pumps are still going," Everett Plante, Homeowner in Salem.

Leblanc said springtime won't be easy.

"Exhausting, not fair, misrepresenting the house, nondisclosure, and we need help," she said.
