Aside from some soggy basements and standing water here and there, life returned to normal in the Bexley area Sunday night following a late-afternoon, early-evening thunderstorm that overwhelmed storm sewers.

"Like all surrounding communities, we had some street flooding and some basement flooding," Bexley service director Bill Harvey said. " Our service department worked with police to identify areas of concern.

"As is normal during situations like this, I was in ongoing communication with the mayor and the police dispatcher to monitor the situation," Harvey said. "Shortly after the rain stopped, street flooding subsided. We also had some tree damage, but nothing significant."

Harvey said Bexley crews were out Monday checking sewer lines for any problems.

"Our tree crews are also inspecting for any downed trees or branches," he said.

As much as four inches of rainfall reportedly fell during the storm. Heavy street flooding was reported along Alum Creek Drive south of East Main Street and at low-lying locations along Livingston Avenue such as the Livingston-Kenwick intersection near the South Bexley-Berwick border.

Some vehicles were temporarily caught in the flash-flooding, but no injuries were reported.
