Overflowing Creek Threatens Homes in Dallas Co.
Some residents in south Dallas County are worried about their homes being damaged by the overflowing flood waters of a nearby creek.
Dianah Stroud of Dallas County says she’s been watching the water from White Oak Creek — rise now for several days.
She says the water is up several feet — and now its knocking on the back door of her basement. She says if the water continues to get higher — it’ll soon be inside her house.
“It’s very rare it gets this high,” said Stroud.
“All of a sudden, Thursday night we had that bad rain and then it started coming up Friday and it just wouldn’t quit it just. It really came up on Saturday morning. I got real nervous because it came up quickly and I was like, okay this is going to be a bad one and sure enough it kept coming.”
Officials with the National Weather Service in Birmingham say the Alabama River has crested and the flood waters have started to recede.
