COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) - Heavy rains caused Magby Creek to overflow into the Masonic Subdivision.
Lowndes County EMA Director Cindy Lawrence says the flooding mostly affected the backside of the neighborhood.
She says most residents had already left.
However, workers evacuated two homes in the subdivision.
Workers closed roads, but they were reopened last night.
Residents say water levels reached about two to three feet high.
