And there came a flood

Several places in and around Taylor County saw a significant amount of rainwater flood roads and neighborhoods late last week.

Residents of some neighborhoods saw flooding so severe that the streets were unpassable for a period of time.

Michael Eppers, of Sheridan Dr., noted that this was not the first time he has seen severe flooding take place on his street, recalling an event in 2010 that resulted in the losses of “four or five houses’” heating and air units.
