Leaks revealed by heavy rain kept roofers busy

EUGENE, Ore. - The record-setting rainfall remains the talk of the town in a city where some people actually love rain.

"I would rather have it rainy and 50 degrees all the time," said Max Pritchett.

"I love walking in it," Janice Lankford. "In downtown Eugene, it's awesome."

Whether you like the rain or not, it means business for roofing and gutter companies.

"We've had over 100 leak calls just as of about 7:30 this morning," said Curtis Large with Evergreen Roofing. "So yeah, they're rolling in fast."

Mary Cheadle called Evergreen roofing Monday morning after she heard leaking in her bedroom.

"Drip, drip, drip," she said. "And then I saw it, but it was still dripping this morning."

Rob Miller with Evergreen Roofing said Mary's House is just one stop of many.

"Six, 8, 10 different stops a day so - it gets crazy," Miller said. "It's go time!"

One of the problems with the rainstorm was that the rain came all at once, overwhelming some drains and gutters in streets and on roofs.

Eric Jones with Eugene Public Works said they received a number of calls for localized flooding and downed branches. City crews spent Monday cleaning up any remaining hazards.
