Downriver Flood Update

Many homeowners in the Downriver area are still cleaning up their basements from the May 1st storm. I have had quite a few clients reach out to me to find out what to do. The most effected Downriver cities were Allen Park, Dearborn, Dearborn Heights, Lincoln Park, Southgate and Taylor.
