COLQUITT COUNTY, GA (WALB) - People in Colquitt County had some rising water of their own to contend with.

Homes were flooded in the Indian Creek Subdivision off of Old Adel Road.

The rising water from the creek caused problems for about 20 homeowners in the area.

Water crept inside a lot of those homes and about 27 people had to be rescued.

On Sunday county officials went back to make sure the power and gas was shut off.

About 30 roads in the county have been closed because of water.

"The flooding closed a lot of roads, about 200 roads have water over them, and we have closed about 32, also two large subdivisions had to be evacuated," Russell Moody, Colquitt Co. EMA Director.

There was a shelter open last night for people who were evacuated.

That shelter is now closed because people have found other places to stay.
