LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

The flood is keeping employees busy at Ace Hardware off  of US 19.

They had multiple flood victims come in Tuesday to buy cleaning supplies.

People were shopping for brooms, mops, pumps, wet vacs and trash cans.

Several of the victims shared their flood stories with the workers. 

"We try to help everybody that we can, no matter what. If we were closed we would've come in and opened up if we'd known it was going to  be that bad. They're just now reassessing it all really just a little bit," said employee Linda Wright.

Employees are also helping some victims get in contact with pool services to get their swimming pools cleaned up.
