Live Oak, Florida - June 27, 2012 -
A rescue mission is underway in Live Oak. Emergency responders are trying to get people out of their flooded homes. Many roads are still shut down as well.
Many people in Suwannee County are having a difficult time coping with the flooded areas of town.
Eyewitness News spoke with Suwannee County Sheriff Tony Cameron. Cameron says emergency officials are still rescuing people from their flooded homes. The mission has proven difficult as many roads are still underwater and shut down.
We met a young couple whose car broke down on the side of the road. They have their 11-week-old twins with them. Because most rescue crews are out helping flooded residents, the Davis' have been waiting for help for almost two hours. They tried to call a tow truck, but the couple says a towing company told them they've raised their rates because they are so swamped with people needing help.
