Flooding in Old Town
Dixie County, Florida -- Residents in Old Town have been dealing with flooding for a few weeks and are waiting for the water levels to go down Wednesday or Thursday.
Officials with the Dixie County Emergency Operations Center say that 15 to 18 roads are underwater.
They are providing sandbags as one possible flooding solution for homeowners.
The flooding is all due to the rising levels of the Suwannee river.
It is making it difficult for residents to go to and from their homes.
Some have been forced to travel by boat.
Audrey Moore says she can't get to her mother's house because her car is too low.
Audrey Moore, resident: "It's an inconvenience because we have to take time out of our daily life.. We can't rush anywhere. We have to take our time going out, plan around it. It happens about every 5 years."
Even though residents are used to rising waters in the neighborhood, they still would like to see a little more done than just road under water signs.
Dixie County Emergency Operations leaders urge homeowners to call them if there are any needs that are not being met.
