WEST PEORIA, Ill -- The renter of the home is staying with relatives and got out okay.

It happened at 4123 W. Southport Road.

The renter says a drain near her mailbox started backing up Thursday morning around 9:30 and within two hours, her first floor was underwater.

She was able to grab essential items and got out of the house safely.

While she is a bit shocked, she is fortunate that she has renter's insurance.
