WASHINGTON - A D.C. councilmember is calling for the establishment of a relief fund for victims of flooding in the Bloomingdale neighborhood over the weekend.
Kenyan R. McDuffie of Ward 5 says rainwater inundated residents during a storm Sunday night and the city government must intervene. McDuffie says the storm caused water to rush under doors and sewage to back up.
City workers distributed sandbags and cleared catch basins on Monday.
The Bloomingdale and LeDroit Park neighborhoods have long been plagued by flooding.
