Flooding for some Chinatown merchants

(KTSF by Hellas Leung)

The weather service is forecasting  rain for the rest of this week in the Bay Area.

For  San Francisco ’s Chinatown  ,  this could mean flooding in many stores  that are below street level.  

Mr. Lee, who  manages  a Chinese restaurant on Jackson Street, said he  is  used to flooding.

He adds that  when the rain is very heavy, the water will come  into the  dining area from the kitchen  and   some customers eat here with their legs soaking in water .” 

The staff  uses  towels to help absorb  the  water.   Lee says the restaurant has a machine to help   dredge   the blocked drainage.
