Rumford Neighbors React to Destroyed Roads and Property

RUMFORD (WGME) -- Ted Orino lives along South Rumford Road and he'll be the first to tell you there's a first for everything.

"Look at it over there you can see it's unbelievable ... the power of water," Orino said on Thursday.

"We got 5 inches of rain in two hours and I've never seen it rain like that," Orino said.

Orino and his wife captured some unbelievable home video during the severe weather on Wednesday.

"It was unbelievable," Orino siad. "Lightning and thunder... steady, steady. Not lightening and then thunder it was lightening, thunder, lightening, thunder, for probably 20 minutes."

With more rain on the way Orino hopes to clean up his yard the best he can. The road in front of his home could take days, possibly weeks to repair.

"It's gonna be a long time before I get this cleaned up," Orino said.

He said he's just thankful his home wasn't damaged.

"Home is fine," Orino said. "Some good luck!"
