Crisp County- Eight roads damaged by Easter weekend rain still remain closed; four are paved and four are dirt.

Workers are still trying to fill a huge hole in McKinney Road and water is still flowing through a section of Cannon Road.

The governor issued a state of emergency for the county, but help will be in the form of resources and manpower, not money.

"We will put our written request in to DOT for their equipment and personnel assistance to fix these things, and that list at least will be in today. We still have a couple of days to refine that list if any more damage is found," says county administrator Gene Crapse.

County officials say they hope to have at least a third of the roads repaired by the end of the week if rain expected this week doesn't slow them down.
