Flood waters force families from homes

July 12, 2005

Baconton - Lane Huntley has lived in Miller Homes for eight years and says this isn't the first time it's been flooded, but it's certainly the worst.

She says when the rains stopped falling, the waters began to rise forcing at least eight families from their homes.

She says, "It stopped raining and from the time we went to Albany and stayed for 45 minutes, it had already came all the way up here." Some people were able to salvage some belongings before the water entered the apartments.

It's not known when they will be able to return.
