BIGBEE, Miss. (WTVA) - Flooding is also impacting residents north of Amory.
Waist-deep water could be seen Tuesday afternoon off Highway 6 in the Bigbee community.
This water is alongside New Road.
Bigbee is located north of Amory among several creeks and bodies of water.
Heavy rains into multiple rivers and creeks caused water to overflow their banks.
“It’s gotten up three times since January,” Bigbee resident Terry Brown said.
The area is a known flood zone and some houses were built on higher ground to avoid water from sweeping through homes.
"Well it has before; it has gotten in the house and ruined the flooring and it makes a huge mess," Brown said.
When flooding occurs there, it often takes passing motorists off guard.
"Quite a few times at a curve right past the house, cars tend to run off in the ditch right there,” he continued. “They kinda can't see it and when they do, it is a bad situation for them."
Motorists in the area, and in general, are urged to avoid driving through flooded roadways.
