PARMA, Ohio — People who live in the southwest part of the City of Parma will meet with city leaders Wednesday night to talk about their frustrations with flooding.

Neighbors there say within minutes of heavy rain starting on July 5, their streets and homes were flooded.

Some people reported sewage backups as well.

All of this left neighbors with a lot of questions and frustrations.

On Wednesday night, Parma’s mayor and the Ward 7 city council representative will meet with neighbor and representatives from Cuyahoga County Emergency Management and the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District.

They'll share information about the flooding and discuss safety issues.

The meeting starts at 6 p.m. at Parma City Hall Council Chambers.
