STORM AFTERMATH: Penn Yan homes flood

Updated: Friday, June 6 2014, 05:37 PM EDT

Penn Yan, N.Y. -- Joanne DeBolt woke up to the sound of breaking glass and rushing water after severe storms hit Yates County Tuesday night.

She said water 8 feet high flowed into her house, uprooting trees and breaking windows. She was forced to evacuate.

Next door, Pam Whitford screamed to wake her son up as her home and street flooded. She said that had never happened before.

Both women live on Clinton Street, which was hit hard by the storm.

No one was hurt, but several people were evacuated.

The Red Cross provided shelter to families and surveyed the damage to homes.
