Main Street covered in mud as Manayunk cleans up after Ida

PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Days after the remnants of Hurricane Ida slammed the area, floodwaters from the Schuylkill River have receded from Main Street in Manayunk, but there's still a lot of cleanup to be done.

Margaret from Norristown was making her way out of Manayunk on slippery Main Street.

"When we arrived, the streets were just inches of mud," she said. She and her husband Malcolm were here helping their friend, artist Jonathan Pinkett clean out his gallery.

"There's mud in the entrance, just when you walk in there’s mud everywhere on the first floor. All of the pictures were pretty much destroyed by the water," she continued. "It's slippery and the trucks have been going non-stop since we got here."
