As Grafton residents prepare for more rain, there's still major clean up happening from the last bout. Nearly 80 percent of homes in Grafton have some sort of damage, from water saturating basements to cracked foundations.

This is keeping some shops busier than ever. Kerry DeMars, who owns the True Value hardware store in downtown Grafton, says he's shipping in emergency orders just to keep up with the demand.

DeMars: "It was coming up through everything and there's nothing you can do, just like the ones that got hit real bad. It was just too much water that could be handled at one time."

DeMars estimates he has thousands of dollars worth of damage in his store alone.
