Cellphone video footage from Youtube user 1kingofhalloween depicts Ohio River flooding from an inundated trailer park in Metropolis, Illinois. The videographer, Steve Chaney, says “It’s quite a disturbing thing to look out your front door and see nothing but water and seeing the water levels increasing slowly.”

In his series of uploads, residents allege emergency officials are apathetic to their plight. Metropolis Mayor Billy McDaniel dismisses the accusation (below).

Landlord Virgil Thomas alleges Emergency officials “don’t care”.
