BECKER, Miss. (WTVA) - Flooding in Monroe County forced a family to evacuate from their home.
Angelica Haro lives along State Highway 25, just south of Amory.
Weaver Creek often floods with heavy rainfalls.
Swift water swept through Angelica Haro's yard.
Her home is adjacent to Weaver Creek, which often floods with heavy rains. The flooding turns nearby yards into small lakes.
"My family has lived here since 1992, but I have lived here for 22 years," she said.
The family is staying with a nearby family member for now.
"This is actually only the third time that it has gotten up this high," she continued.
Her home has suffered damage in the past.
"It gets inside,” Hora said. “It gets up to about a foot is about the highest it has been. The first time we had to replace all of the furniture, all of the electronics and the floors had to be redone, and the second time is when we got mold and we had to clean the mold out."
Old Highway 25 is located behind Hora’s home. A barricade was put there Tuesday morning to prevent further passage.
With flooding in general, motorists are urged to avoid driving through flooded roadways.
