BACONTON, GA (WALB) - Flooding continues to be a problem in Baconton.

Water from Raccoon creek flooded Miller Homes, a public housing complex this weekend. The water receded some and is no longer in their homes, but today residents had a big mess to clean up and were still without power. Many units in the back were under three to five feet of water yesterday.

"When I went in yesterday the water was about a foot deep in the apartment. And because we had to get out so fast, we didn't really save or get anything out yesterday. So all of our stuff is pretty much wet," said Tammy Simmons.

Many residents here are staying in nearby hotels or with family.

Down the road from the housing authority, this home is completely surrounded by water, and a nearby road completely submerged in water.  Feedback
