Donalsonville-- More than three months ago, hundreds of businesses and homes were flooded. Many store owners lost merchandise and probably customers to the flash floods.
The manager of Tea Olive, Anne Marie Burke, says business has picked up for the holidays, but they are not extremely busy. “Everybody had stores open while cleaning up, but a lot of people assumed we were closed,” said Burke. “A lot of people didn't come in.”
Like many owners, she's still cleaning up mold from the floods. The Tea Olive had a foot of water inside the store and the basement was completely flooded.
Hopefully, a Streetscape project will prevent Donalsonville businesses from flooding again. “The half million dollar downtown renovation project started a month before the floods,” said City-County Manager Marty Shingler. “Along with new sidewalks and lighting, the city plans to add a better drainage system."
Planned long before the floods, there wasn't any storm drainage on Main Street, and when the project is complete, there will be storm drainage in areas where water stands after a rain. "We'll go ahead and get it out of there as much as possible," said Shingler.
Like other rural Southwest Georgia towns, Donalsonville got $250,000 from the State Department of Transportation, and City money will pay the rest of the bill.
