SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) –A Worth County woman is fed up with dealing with her backyard after a heavy rain.

Brenda Sun Gann lives on Griffin Houston Road adjacent to a small creek. She says every time they get a heavy rain the creek rises and floods her yard and other yards on the road.

She says floodwaters have destroyed many of her treasured memories stored in sheds.

While it hasn't gotten into her house yet, it has gotten under it and she is constantly on the lookout.

"Right how I'm hoping it doesn't get any higher than it already is, this creek has gone up to my waist and I'm five foot one and it has done a lot of damage up and down Griffin Houston Road," said Gann.

Gann says even though she's sick and tired of the flooding moving is not an option. She has too many memories at her home to pick up and move.
