Sylvester- Floodwaters damaged or destroyed at least 100 homes and businesses in Worth County.

Even the county's fire and EMA office had nearly four inches of water inside. The bottom three feet of all the walls had to be replaced. But many homes in Sylvester had four feet of water inside them and are no longer habitable.

"A lot of them that were renting in mobile homes, they couldn't go back and rebuild the mobile homes the older ones. They pretty much moved to different counties out of the area if there wasn't anything available in Sylvester or Worth County," says Ford.

EMA officials say homeowners who are rebuilding are at different stages of renovation. They estimate that at least 30 families have moved.
