ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Two days ago, water from the Kinchafoonee Creek crept up past pink markings on the road. No one around the area could access their home.
Now, reality has hit Chuck Weston and his family on Creekside Drive. They've been tearing up the carpet, and ripping out the baseboards.
"Every floor in every room of the house will have to be replaced," Weston said.
Weston's home received three inches of water inside. He had to take everything out of his daughter's room who isn't home to see it.
Wet carpet, damaged toys, and other items sat in their yard near the road. It's a price he hopes flood insurance will cover. Weston says he's concerned it won't include his master bedroom and bathroom where the septic tank flooded and left mold behind.
The creek rushes in his back yard but never came over the 15 foot hill that protects his son Chase, his dog and the rest of his family who enjoy living on the water.
"Out of the 99 percent of the time when you can sit out on your deck and watch the boats go by and hang out with your friends and go swimming, it's worth it for the one percent of the time you have to worry about it," Weston added.
