Flooding in Dixie County
Cross City, Florida -- Flooding in Dixie County caused some lanes on U-S highway 19 to be underwater earlier today.
According to Dixie County's director of emergency services, the county received about 1 and a half inches of rain this morning.
If you add that up with what they've gotten in the past 24 hours, the county received nearly 5 inches of rainfall.
The water started to subside around homes and businesses early in the day.
But the area around Lydia Baptist church had growing water issues.
Members of the church say flooding happens at least once a year.
They've made adjustments to prevent too much water from entering.
Hal Chewning, Deacon: "We go through this every time we have a big rain. We used to have carpet for these rooms but we finally learned, pull it out, put in tile, water doesn't hurt it."
Dixie County emergency officials say they're continuing to monitor the water levels in the city.
