Rain has made Bill Rain's community park look more like a swamp.
“Like I said, man. It's just too much water for right now. We need the rain, but we don't need this much rain,” said Patrick Johns, who was fishing in a creek that now looks more like a lake.
The Cumberland River flows right through Williamsburg and it has jumped its banks....but thanks to a flood wall put in years ago...the town is protected...even if it rains a lot more. But most people would like to see the rain go away and come again another day.
“Last year it didn't rain at all...so I guess now it's our turn,” laughed resident Ronald Rains.
Constant rain has also flooded Briar Creek Park and closed some roads. Local residents say the water over Dal Rd. is 3 feet deep and is too dangerous to drive through.
“Ah...you get used to it. The way it rains... you know high it's going to get. It's not a big issue,” said Rains.
Whitley County's Emergency Mgt. director says the good news is that the floodwaters are not expected to damage homes or property.
