Pictured above is a 15 foot gap in the driveway of Jackie Hunt, located on Commonwealth Avenue in Ludlow. The gap was the result of torrential rains recently that totalled over 3 inches in a relatively short period of time. According to Hunt, it was necessary to "do some mountain climbing" to go from the street to her home to traverse the gapping hole.
She noted that it took two days for a contractor to refill and pack the hole created by the rushing water and brush that it carried. The torrent of rain carried debris down Commonwealth Avenue onto Ludlow's South Main Street (Route 103), littering the area with dirt, rocks, and whatever else debris it carried down the North Hill area. As of this writing, Ludlow officials were still cleaning up the resulting mess.
