Families that live near the construction site for a new Kroger in Georgetown have adjusted to the noise. But, having to deal with debris crashing into the homes is something they never expected.

"Here it's winter, Christmas, and cold weather. I already had one heart attack last December, and now all of this. It is just too much worry," says Patti Merriman, a resident in Georgetown.

Patti Merriman couldn't even sleep in her own bedb last night because the mess from the blasting explosion still hasn't been cleaned up.

"It makes me upset. It is just not right," says Merriman.

We tried getting answers from crews on site about what went wrong but were kicked off the property. The Construction company told us after though, that insurance adjusters will be getting in touch with the two families left with damage.

"It's displacing me because I can't get in there to take a shower. I have to go in the big bathroom, and have to sleep with my granddaughter," Merriman says.

With a hole left in the ceiling and debris covering her bedroom, Merriman now waits for someone to make repairs to her home.

"And hope it gets done, but I don't want no band-aid job either,"
says Merriman.

Kroger officials tell WKYT that they plan to make sure that this situation gets handled correctly because these families could likely become future customers.
