People in Allentown are still picking up the pieces from  massive flooding that hit the area on Thursday.

The owners of RC Moore For The Unique Individual say they had 2 to 3 inches of standing water inside their shop.

Heavy rain pounded the Lehigh Valley Thursday and the downpours turned some local roads into rivers.

The damage was devastating to the consignment store on West Allen Street.

"Nobody was hurt. No lives were lost," said Rose Ellen Moore, the owner  RC Moore For The Unique Individual. "When you sink your hearts and soul into a business, it's tough."

Moore said some of her customers have helped in the extensive cleanup effort.
