SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Several families in Sylvester are spending the day cleaning up after rising water caused minor flooding in their homes.

Mark Bailey was one of more than 30 households who had to get out of their homes Saturday. Bailey said after water started seeping through his doors, he got as much furniture as he could off the floor.

As much as five inches of water got into the bedroom. And Bailey spent the day trying to salvage the carpet throughout the home.

"It started at around one o'clock yesterday. The ditch out front couldn't hold all of the water and it started coming up in the yard. Within five minutes, it started to come through the doors," said Bailey.

North street is now closed between Willow and North Henderson after the same water that crept into Bailey's home and yard washed out part of the road.
