Residents on Utopia Parkway are still drying out a week after heavy rains backed up street sewers and flooded their homes. For many, it's the third time this has happened in about a year.
Queens Residents Ask City To Help With Flooding Problem
"Last year, it happened twice in the period of a month," said resident Robert Georgescu.
That's too much for Robert Georgescu and his neighbors, who say they want the city to fix the problem. Georgescu says it's the city's fault, and he has proof --- home video he shot during last Saturday's storm. He says the footage backs up his claims that there's something wrong with the sewer system in the neighborhood.
NY1 also tried to reach out to the city for comment. The station's calls were not returned.
In the meantime, these residents say they will just have to continue fending for themselves.
