Heavy rainfall from the remnants of Hurricane Ida caused flash flooding Wednesday afternoon, leaving some Berks residents no choice but to evacuate their home.

This was the case in Wyomissing, where residents at the Cambridge Commons Apartment complex were forced to evacuate after flash flooding from Wyomissing Creek spilled into several buildings.
