(West Akron) - The storms Wednesday afternoon hit close to home.

Newsradio WTAM 1100's Ken Robinson says his home in west Akron was flooded by the storms.

Ken lives near Buchtel High School, and says they've never had anything worse than mild flooding before. This time, the basement filled quickly and moved to the first floor.

Ken and his family evacuated the house and went to a neighbor's. He says some people may have to be rescued by boat. He says it appears that a sewer line backed up, leading to the flood conditions.

Along with the house, Ken says his car was almost totally submerged.
