MYSTIC, Conn. (WTNH)-- Cleaning up again. Kalim Malik shows pictures of how high the water was at Mystic Mobil this morning. And that's nothing compared to Superstorm Sandy.
When asked how high the water was, Malik said, "two feet. Two feet water."
News 8 has learned the water comes from a nearby storm drain.
"How many times damage to my store? I'm a small business, economy so bad. What they are waiting for, I don't know?" said Malik.
Houses along that same sewer line have also flooded.
When folks in a home woke up this morning, there was water in the driveway pretty high up. You can even see the water line on a car, which is now water damaged, and right across the driveway, is a jelly fish now stranded.
The water also floated away a new pile of wood and pushed in a door, allowing water to pour into a basement.
"It was actually over the steps over here. You can see the top, it was over that second step," said an unidentified man, referring to the water.
These concerns were brought to Stonington's first selectman.
"Yeah, we've been discussing it the past two weeks and it's a very old structure that was there," said Ed Haberek, First Selectman.
So old it doesn't have a back flow valve to stop the river from rising up through these storm drains.
"That's something that we learned from the hurricane that needs to be addressed right away," said Haberek.
