Metro Detroit is still recovering from severe storms which brought historic levels of flooding to the area. The damage from the flooding extended to freeways, roads, and homes—including flooded basements and tons of damaged property.
Affected cities have asked residents to pile unsalvageable debris from the storm onto the curb. In many places around the region, it's still sitting there.
