A homeowner in South Jackson describes the torrential rainfall they experienced as a river coming through her home.

It happened at a home in the 3000 block of Suncrest Drive.

Homeowner Mary Thompson said the water began to rise as she was setting out flowers.

Thompson said the entire house got flooded because the neighborhood's sewer system cannot handle that much rain.

"When it rains like this, like it has done today, the water just gets extremely high, and so this is my third time battling this, the rain. My house is unlivable right now," Thompson said.

The home owner said she does have insurance to address the damage.

She said a company came out Friday to measure the sewer lines and wondered if they might have accidentally done something to cause the problem.
