Thomasville - Real Estate agents are getting calls from Floridians who want to move inland to South Georgia. In Thomasville, agents have received calls from evacuees from Punta Gorda, Vero Beach and West Palm Beach, Florida. All are looking for a change in scenery somewhere that they won't have to run from every hurricane.

Rose City Realty owner Kay Davis says, "People welcome you into the community. I think it makes people want to come back and we have a lot of houses on the market here, and they're nice houses."

Rose City Realty is working with four Florida families. Other agencies are also receiving calls from people anxious to leave Florida.
