ECRU, Miss. (WTVA) — A woman evacuated her home in Ecru Wednesday because of flooding.
A wet bed skirt showed how high the water got in the area of Old Highway 15 and North Street.
Water in a nearby drainage ditch topped a levee. That and high water on Nowlin Lane combined to cause a mess maintenance workers cleaned up.
"The water came down so fast, it didn't have anywhere else to go," said maintenance worker Grant King.
Ecru and Pontotoc County got more than five inches of rain, triggering a flash flood emergency.
