VESTAVIA HILLS, AL (WBRC) -
The workers of Vestavia Bowl are working hard to re-open their doors after major flooding nearly two weeks ago.
The clean up could take weeks to complete. Workers say when they arrived at the building April 7 the parking lot had disappeared under four and a half feet of standing water and the bowling lanes were under water.
Vestavia Bowl hopes to be re-open to league bowlers in 4 weeks and re-open to the general public in 6 weeks.
In the meantime, employees are gutting the building.
Keith Henderson has managed Vestavia Bowl for the past 18 years and he says this month's issues top anything he's ever seen in past floods.
"I put a lot of time and effort into it and it was staggering. I would be the first to admit it was very very traumatic moment," he said about seeing the bowling alley after the rains.
But Henderson says there's no time to wallow. He adds that the community has show them great support. Some residents have dropped by to bring the workers lunch during the cleanup.
