BROOKLYN - Water has been restored, but the cleanup has only just begun after a main break flooded several homes in Canarsie.
Officials say that 20 two-family homes were flooded when a main from 1961 shut down on East 80th Street, between Farragut and Glenwood roads, Tuesday morning.
One family estimates at least $25,000 in damage so far. They even lost Christmas presents that were wrapped and under the tree.
Some residents say they're also struggling with insurance companies that don't want to cover the costs because their neighborhood isn't considered a flood zone.
