COPLEY -- This city also experienced severe flooding.

WKYC Photojournalist Carl Bachtel spent the day in Copley.

Flood waters rushed along Collier Road in Copley, leaving residents reeling. Robert Dunkler's family farm is under water. His greenhouses and fields are flooded, his corn crop destroyed.

On Knox Road, 13 people and 5 dogs were evacuated by boat, thanks to Summit County's SORT team. Now 35-year-resident Ron O'Farrell and his dog Buddy are trying to figure things out.

But at least he got to meet his new neighbors, who just moved in last week. They were flooded as well.

The Westlawn Golf Range looks more like a canoe livery. The driving range is under water.

There's really nothing to do but wait until the water goes down and roll with Mother Nature's punch.
