Public work crews remain busy Tuesday night trying to protect homes and roads in low-lying areas.

Thankfully, they got a break from the heavy rain Tuesday afternoon

In Lee County, flooding near North DoubleGate Drive and Hampton Lane is still a major concern with holding ponds filling up. The pumping job takes a lot of team work.

"This is going to take a lot of water off the folks that live in this area here, I don't know what it is going to do with the next heavy rain, but at least we've moved some water to make room for more water," said Lee County Public Works Director Mike Sistrunk.

The Lee County Fire Department helped by bringing in a third pump to speed up the processes of lowering the water levels in the holding ponds.
