No anchovies but ya alot of damage man for sure in the basement. In my 5 years at Paquin I think this one is the worst I have ever seen. There was a van in the parking lot that the water was just at the top of it's bumper as it sits in the middle of the lot in a handicapped spot near the center drain.
