BROOKLYN - Some East New York residents lost everything they owned Wednesday when a sewer backed up into their homes during the heavy rain.

Residents on Cleveland Street in East New York say sewers started backing up around 7 p.m. Wednesday night. They say every basement on the block was flooded with between 1 to 5 feet of water.

They say their neighborhood isn't in a flood zone, so they do not have flood insurance.

The Office of Emergency Management is asking anyone who had flooding to report it to 311.
