All the heavy rain this week isn't just affecting local rivers. Even those who live on high ground are dealing with flooding.
Miles from the river, in one of the highest neighborhoods in Davenport, still nearly every house on Nina Dammod's block had water in their basements.
"As you can see I'm standing in almost ankle deep water and actually right here you can see on the chair here. That's how high the water actually got," Dammad points at the water mark inches up on a basement chair.
Her basement walls were no match for the record rainfall. "It just came in so many directions last night (Wednesday night) we weren't able to keep up with it," Dammad explained it all caused quite a mess. "We have damage to the drywall, damage to the floorboards damage to the carpets."
While buying supplies to clean up Dammad quickly learned she was far from alone. "We drove all the way to Dewitt to find a sump pump."
Water foundation and repairman Mark Keleher says no home is safe from water. "From a new house to an old house block walls concrete walls doesn't really matter."
He says drainage is the key, if not the pressure can build and your troubles get much worse. "When you don't relieve the pressure block walls and concrete walls can be pushed in and compromise the structure."
For Dammad that's one headache she is working hard to avoid "It's a never ending battle, this is crazy this is nuts, I'm so sick of rain." Because of where Dammad lives she doesn't have flood insurance, she says she will likely have to pay for the damages out of her own pocket.
