A homeowner (left) looks on as local firefighters Swarthmore, Pennsylvania help pump water out of his flooded basement after a hurricane. The home had lost power earlier in the day, making his sump pump inoperable and causing water to quickly rise in his basement. The homeowner refinishes old furniture for friends and family in his basement. The quick action of the firemen, along with some helping hands from neighbors, helped save some of most valuable pieces. Throughout the day the all-volunteer firefighters helped a number of other residents with flooding problems.
