Sylvester-- Worth County and City of Sylvester leaders have arranged a 1:00 meeting today to assist residents who are still recovering from Sunday's flooding.

The public meeting will be held at the new fire station on Westberry Street in Sylvester, and will include representatives from the city and county, DFACS, Public Health, and the State Insurance Commissioner's Office.

Officials intend the meeting to be a one-stop source for anyone whose home was flooded, whether they live in Sylvester, or in Worth County, and they stress that if residents have questions, this is the place to get them answered.

They also hope to be able to assist victims with vouchers soon.

The cleanup continues in the area, with 79 homes flooded in the city, and at least 12 more in Worth County. Flooding ranged from an inch to 3 or 4 feet of water in people's homes.

The help number for city residents is 776-8505, and 776-8223 for the county.
