Rainfall Overwhelms Fresno Ponding Basins

A broken standpipe slowed efforts to lower the level of this ponding basin, causing water to spill onto the street. Inconvenient for drivers passing through, and the folks in the neighborhood like Suriya Muro; "Actually they need to do something about it because it's pretty high, it's really high and so it's just nerve wracking just to drive through it."
