Washington County residents continue to face flooding

WASHINGTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - While the Florida Panhandle is getting its bearings after Hurricane Michael, one community is facing another problem.

We spoke to some residents who said the flooding, which has been going on for months, is creating some issues. Some said the flooding has affected their drive to work and forced others to move out of their homes.

We spoke to one resident, Beverly Lewis, about the flooding. She said while she's lived in her home for almost 20 years, she's never seen anything like this.

Lewis knows she isn't alone in her situation though, especially since Hurricane Michael.

"We're basically indoor camping like so many people in Panama City are. Everybody around here knows that term, 'indoor camping,' where you're just making do and it's a mess," she said.

She and her family are relying on makeshift walkways to get in and out of their home. Despite this, she remains optimistic.

Lewis said, "Well, I figure I got to focus on the future and know the best is yet to come, that's my personal philosophy, and it's got to get better than this mess, right?"

We also reached out to Washington County officials to see if there are future plans to address the flooding. We are waiting to hear back at this time.
