ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Some neighborhoods in Albany still appear as if the January storms happened yesterday.

One of those areas is College Heights.

It had so much damage that some residents can't even stay in their homes.

Residents said that so far, at least three homes will be condemned, while some homes have already been taken down.

They added that the area was overlooked before the storms hit.

"Well the neighborhood will never be like it once has been. I've been out here 42 years and it's a real good neighborhood. Real quiet and so forth. But see we had a lot of trees and so forth, which had us kind of sealed in. A lot of people didn't know we were back here, until the storm came through," said resident John Jackson, Sr.

Residents said that the cleanup process is still ongoing.
