The remnants of a flood that closed Columbia Road at First Street can be seen in these photographs taken late Monday morning. Flash flooding due to heavy rainfall early Monday required the city to close nine sections of roads, Service Director Paul Quinn said. City officials received dozens of complaints of waters in homeowners’ basements. Quinn said the Service and Engineering departments are evaluating the complaints and will follow up if any areas of the city’s sewer system require additional attention.
