Moultrie is still soggy

MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) - Folks in Moultrie are still recovering from the severe storms we had over the past couple days.

One homeowner says the heavy rains caused her neighbor's backyard to flood. And when she called for sandbags to stop the water from reaching their home, she said emergency management was overwhelmed by the extent of the rainfall.

"It's really shocking," said Dianne Nipper. "It's a real shock how close it can hit home. How close and how instantly we can be flooded, within the length of hours."

Nipper says the water is still several feet deep, but she's relieved there was no severe damage to the home.
