Volunteers passed out more than 4,000 sand bags on Monday and Tuesday. People have dealt with flood damage and prepared for the possibility of more rain. Volunteers said they will continue to fill sand bags as long as people are in need. They filled thousands by hand Tuesday and only stopped when they ran out of dirt. The sand bags are available for free at the Houston County, but only in emergency situations.
Eleven inches of rain poured into the Wiregrass Monday and Houston County EMA Director, Clark Matthews said even a little more rain could be damaging."We're getting prepared for another round because the ground is so saturated that some areas couldn't handle even two or three more inches of rain," explained Matthews. EMA staff and volunteers are prepared for possible evacuations for homes near creeks and rivers, but they hope that won't be the case.
