Scope and content

"Friday night's torrential downpour created some problems for homeowners on Britannia Ave. Mud and debris, swept along by water, plugged the catch basins behind the homes of Richard McIndless and John Maddox and overflowed into their backyards. Saturday morning, their carefully manicured lawns were a quagmire. The force of the water was so powerful that heavy rolls of sod were carried from a block away and deposited on the lawn. The problem was apparently aggravated by grading operations that had been in progress on the hill above Britannia Ave. prior to the laying of sod for homes on Lee Ave."
