ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  The Terrell County Health Department had to move because of flood damage to the building.

Servepro crews are still mopping up from the flood last week. Broken pipes sent as much as three inches of water throughout the offices. Right now, the department is providing limited services at the Mental Health Building on Forrester Drive. They're making do after losing a lot of equipment.

"Any electronic equipment that was plugged in and got submerged. We lost those. A lot of records were lost, patient records, they're still secure we're just trying to figure out how to get them decontaminated," said Charlotte Law, Terrell County Health Director.

The health department is dealing with the most pressing situations first which include prescriptions that need to be refilled. They ask that you call before stopping by to ensure they're providing the service customers need.

To reach the health department call (229)995-2188.
