Elmhurst resident commends teenaged helper after flood
ELMHURST – Silvia Bartolone woke up to seven feet of water in the basement of her dream home on April 18.

As soon as the street emerged from beneath the water, 16-year-old Sarah Milkowski crossed the street and began helping the Bartolones carry sopping wet furniture out of their basement.
