WILMINGTON, Del. - Nearly two weeks since Ida struck Wilmington, Delaware, cleanup goes on while residents hope for a federal emergency declaration in the home state of the President Joe Biden.
It’s estimated some 250 homes took on water as the Brandywine Creek rose well beyond his banks on the morning after Ida hit.
On Monday, a city trash truck rolled along 14th. Street in the Riverside neighborhood of Wilmington hauling off soaked drywall and trash.Nearby, workers from the veteran-led group Team Rubicon mucked out homes and began cutting away sodden drywall.
