SUNDAY UPDATE 10 AM - Chloe Alfred got worried as water rushed across her property at the mouth of a hollow just off Route 16, south of Arnoldsburg. Sunday morning storms dropped two inches of rain on parts of Calhoun, causing small streams to go out of banks.

The Arnoldsburg Volunteer Fire Department responded after 8 a.m. as water was entering Alfred's outbuilding and house. Damage was minimal.

While on scene, firemen heard the squalls of a cat trapped underneath the flooring of a shed. "It was making a gurgling sound in the water," they said. Pulling up the flooring, firemen rescued the the cat, probably in the nick of time.
