Flooding on Roads Concerns Marion Co. Residents
Published July 7th, 2014
MARION COUNTY---It was a rainy Fourth of July weekend for North Central Florida.
Some Marion County residents are now experiencing flooding on their roads.
TV20 meteorologists expect that Citra saw 5-7 inches of rain from Friday to Sunday night.
The roads leading to 65-year-old Helen Evans's house in Citra are flooded because of all that rain.
Evans has serious health conditions and she worries paramedics couldn't get to her house if she happened to need them.
"They'd probably have difficulty. They could possibly even get stuck down there," said flooding victim Helen Evans.
"Maybe the small fire truck could make it down here,"said Helen's daughter Mary Evans. "But I don't really see the big fire truck or the big ambulance making it down this driveway."
Marion County Road Maintenance says Evans is on her own when it comes to repairing or upkeeping her roads.
They are not county owned.
