ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA) -- For many families, dealing with this storm is 10 times worse than the impact of Hurricane Irene 2 weeks ago.
Especially the people who live in Alexandria, Va. Most homes there dealt with a glancing blow from Irene, but this time around, tropical storm Lee was devastating.
One man thought he had moved to higher ground.
"Last time I ran, this time I stayed," Alexandria native Richard Wilson said.
Wilson stayed in his rental home Thursday night, even as Cameron Run crested chest-high on Fenwick street right outside his door.
Back in 2006, the Huntington section of Alexandria area suffered $10 million dollars in flood damage.
"It was bad, really bad, this time not so bad," Wilson said.
