EAST AURORA, Il. - Imagine raw sewage spewing from your toilet --
a six-foot geyser of gross, stinky glop and gloop.

It happened to one family living in suburban Chicago. Workers from the village of North Aurora were pressure-
washing a sewer line. Then, Kelley Siler and her family's toilets became fountains of sewage from the entire
block.

It continued to gush and spew for about 20 minutes -- even filling up a bathtub with human feces.

"Six feet in the air out of our toilet for 20 minutes straight,"
"When I tried to salvage stuff for my mom, there were actually little poopies
floating through the hallway from the neighbor's house."

Chicago toilet becomes 'sewage volcano'

There's nothing worse then having your plumbing back up during the holidays, but something like this - CRAP!

:lol:

The stench will never go away. Now the 64 million dollars question. Is this covered under flood insurance or.... ?

I always wanted to know why they call towns in IL villages... :lol:

my understanding is flood insurance is for flooding (from a rainstorm or similiar)
homeowners insurance should pay for flooding resulting from plumbing or broken pipes, etc.
shouldn't the city/village or whoever is in charge of the sewer be resposible in a case like this ?
