Worth County-- Albany's not the only place with drainage problems because of all this rain.
The area behind County Line Road in Worth County has turned into a lake during the past couple of days. Terry Gray lives nearby, and Thursday night, he his truck got stuck because he didn't realize the water was almost three feet deep.
Gray says when ponds were built in Triple Lakes neighborhood, the drainage system built to keep this from happening, was likely destroyed. "Or either covered up the drainage that was properly distributing the water from this area. Now, It's all backed up again and we've got the same problem we had in '94."
The water is covering septic tanks and wells and making it difficult for some to get to their homes. The wrecker driver on the scene tonight also said it's especially important right now for people to avoid driving through any type of standing water.
