ALBANY, GA (WALB) -  An on-going battle continues in one Tift County subdivision. Homeowners in the McInnis Mills neighborhood say after the rains Sunday night, they'll have trouble sleeping. 

They say their last flood in March came in the middle of the night when they only had minutes to evacuate.

This time Beth Sellers and Mindy Palmer say they have emergency items ready like candles and water. They've even packed overnight bags in case they have to leave in the middle of the night.

Both women are teachers. They have substitute lesson plans ready in case flood waters keep them from leaving their homes.

"We don't sleep on nights like this," said homeowner Mindy Palmer. "You know the water is high and there is nowhere for it to go. It's nerve wracking."

The families say they still have no help from the county and they're waiting for someone to clear away the debris and uprooted trees sitting in the creek behind their homes.
