Surveillance video reveals flooded business

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Monday's heavy rain caused a lot of headaches for plenty of people especially for one business owner. His surveillance video tells the story of the flood waters.

Calvin Esau has owned Speedy Transmission on Northshore drive for the past 16 years and Monday was the worst flooding he has seen in years.

He shared his surveillance video of when the water started to rush into the garage and then into the office.

Employees did everything they could to stop the water but had to leave the building once it became too dangerous.

Luckily, none of the cars in the garage were damaged; however, Calvin says there will be significant damage to the office.
