The rising waters have forced many homeowners in Cowford, just west of Ebro, to seek higher ground.
Big Cedar Road now sits several feet under water. The water has risen by as much as 10 feet in some places, and the river hasn't even crested.
Electricity and telephones are out.
Many of theses residents stayed after the last big flood in 1994, but some say this is the last straw.
Walton County officials hope the rain will hold of this week so the waters can recede to tolerable levels.
