Water collapses Alexandria basement - damage estimated at $40,000
JoMarie Cory came home to more than a wet basement on Monday.
In the midst of Monday's heavy rain, a basement wall collapsed under her house.
"I came home during my lunch break to show someone the couch I'm trying to get rid of and this is what I found," Cory said.
The 40-foot long east wall of her basement buckled in and filled her basement with concrete block, mud and water.
"I cried," she told the Echo Press on Tuesday.
