It could cost $200,000 to repair boxes of Trumbull County records damaged in  Wednesday’s storms.

Crews were still busy on Tuesday cleaning up in the basement of the county-owned Stone Building at the corner of North Park Avenue and High Street, which houses various county records, including deeds, estate tax records and court records.

About 130 boxes were soaked at the Stone Building after the basement flooded when the sewer backed up. Commissioner Paul Heltzel said each record will have to be dried out and sanitized from the raw sewage.

Commissioners said they are still assessing the damage and are not sure if insurance will cover all of the damage.
