BACONTON, GA (WALB) -

Nearby residents of a Baconton housing complex that flooded are dealing with flooding problems as well.

Brad Royal showed us his property, which is being flooded by rain water coming from the neighboring complex.

Royal has a drain in his yard that is suppose to move water away from his property, but with too much rain water, the drain is now backing up and causing a mess on his property.

"This whole area is going to fill up with water, which means there are several families that are going to have to get up and move out. We have to call the utilities company and get them to cut the power off because most of it is underground," said Royal.

Royal hopes the problem can be corrected before the city is hit again with more rain.
