Cooking away the storm in Meadowmere Park
(Page 3 of 3)

Food stockpiled in the Meadowmere Park chief’s office has helped feed residents displaced by the storm.

Along with its inflatable boat, one of the Meadowmere department’s four emergency vehicles was damaged, along with some firefighting gear, despite the fact that it was put on higher shelves. Nearly seven feet of water surged through the first floor of the firehouse before the flooding receded.

Despite the losses, Carrero and Fire District Commissioner Stephen MacFadden said the firehouse would remain open to residents as long as it’s needed. “We’re not worrying about the money right now,” MacFadden said.
