Water frustrations linger for Lee Co. residents


Homeowners on a Lee County street are still frustrated about flooding on their street.

Part of Joe Toole Drive is still closed. Water has covered the road since last week.

The Fabbri family left because they can't drive in and out, and school buses and mail trucks can't access their part of the road.

County officials say the water will have to go down on its own, since there is nowhere to pump it.

"I know we got some rainy weather coming up at the end of the week and I'm worried that its going to dump even more on us," said resident Jennifer Fabbri. "And with us not having a pump or any way to get some of the water out , I don't want to get stranded again."

Neighbors put out sticks so those driving through the water can see where the street starts and ends.
