As Milwaukee continues to clean up after last week's flood, we present shocking videos of the damage that racked the East Side area near Oakland Avenue and the usually quiet streets in Shorewood.  

The torrential rain -- reportedly close to 7 inches in an hour -- caused flash flooding in several parts of the city. The East Side was hit particularly  hard and this band of merry videographers captured the action on film.

When you watch it, you'll be amazed by the ferocity of the flood and the damage it caused to homes, cars and businesses. You also may wonder about the sanity of the guys shooting the video and cavorting in streets awash in storm water and raw sewage.
