TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - People all over North Mississippi woke up to heavy rain and flooded streets Thursday morning.
Surprisingly, some in the area were not bothered by the inches of rain we recieved.
"It makes me want to sleep all day long," said Norma Roberts.
"The rain makes me feel wonderful," explained Bernice Townsend.
Another resident was just glad it was warm outside.
"The rain doesn’t bother me today, I'm glad to see warm weather," said Pete Renals.
Even though it didn't affect Renals, some neighborhoods in Tupelo like the Westwind Community encountered some flooded streets.
Others faced crowded roads.
"On my way here, the rain was so hard, everyone slowed down to 35 miles an hour," explained Gerald Rye.
Some residents said they are not concerned about flooding, even with more rain in the forecast.
"I'm not too worried about floods," said Shaquille Crayton.
Townsend said she will just stay inside and avoid the rain.
"No I just wont be in it, it's too dangerous," said Townsend.
Bishop Flair on the other hand is nervous about the potential flooding.
"It affects a lot of businesses and people can't get to work on time," said Flair.
