Heavy rains force water to rise again

Wednesday’s heavy rain caused the water to rise again in parts of Pike County that flooded last month.

People in the Harless Creek, Regina, and Marrowbone areas say the creeks overflowed into the roads and yards.

Emergency management officials report no serious damage or safety threats.

Officials believe the debris in the creeks from the last flood caused the water to spill out.

Some of last month’s flood victims say they were scared.

“It rained a good 15 minutes and it flooded again and this is just ridiculous. I don't know what people's gonna do,” Peggy Sawyers said.

Workers spent the evening removing debris from the creeks.
