Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- People living in the Sabin area, dealing with water in their basements after half a foot of rain.

Elizabeth Fleming says her family had three inches of water on their floors.

The rain was too much for their sump pump to handle.

She's tearing out wet carpet, replacing the pump, and bringing up boxes. They're lucky this damage isn't any worse.

Elizabeth Fleming- Flooded Basement: "Everything was fine in the basement at midnight when we went upstairs then six am when we went to check it, the sump pump had failed at some point during the night and we had about three inches of water all over."
