MONROE COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) - The rain expected Tuesday night has residents in Monroe County, on Wilson Hill Loop, scared for their safety after rain from March 29th left their roads muddy and not driveable.
"No one could get in their homes and no one could get out of their homes," said Jannie Buckingham. "I had to pick my kid up from school because our school bus had an accident and slid into a ditch with a kid in it."
Jannie Buckingham lives on Wilson Hill Loop in Monroe county and says the road left everyone at a standstill.
"The only way I was able to maneuver is because my husband has a 4X4 pickup and he battled through the mud."
She says her biggest concern is everyone's safety when it rains again.
"Something could have happened to our neighbors and no one would have been able to get to them," Buckingham explained.
Buckingham says she wasn't getting many answers from the board of supervisors so she reached out to WTVA.
Supervisor Fulton Ware says they are doing the best they can to fix Wilson Hill Loop.
"We are out here trying to get rock on the road, so this same situation won't happen to us again today."
Buckingham says it has been five days since she has received mail because the postal driver won't drive down the road.
Ware says it will take them a year to put the pavement back on the roads.
