North Escambia County Flooding

For people who experienced flood damage, hearing about the potential for more flooding was enough to make them nervous.

Some heavy downpours Wednesday, caused some problems, but nothing like what we saw a few weeks ago.

Julie Booth-Moran came to work at Century Pharmacy to find  a leaking roof and the back part of the store flooded.

She says, when they opened a back door, water came gushing in.

"We had a lot of water, it was about 6 inches. It was a lot of water in a short period of time," said Booth-Moran.

Some wet carpets and floors, but she and staff at the pharmacy managed to clean it all up.

The city brought over some sand bags to prevent any more flooding, and some pumps outside started working.

They didn't close down the pharmacy though, it was business as usual.

"We just keep going. We have to do what we gotta do," said Booth-Moran.

Crews were out around Escambia County working on repairing some damaged roads, like on Dog Track Road.But the rain and lightning stopped that from happening.

For flood victims, seeing any sort of rain brings back some unwanted memories. Donna Hernandez, who lives out in Lake Charlene, just finished gutting out her home. She's waiting for contractors to arrive.

"You're able to do it once. But when you have to do it twice or three times back to back, that's when it gets to looking like a mountain you can't climb," said Hernandez.

As you're driving around, be careful and take it slow. there could be some standing water in a few areas.

Also, there are still several roads around the county that are closed.
