Wakulla County, FL--Our area has seen many flood warnings in the past few days. Especially, along the Saint Marks River.

"The river is high right now and it has been rising," said Mary Ellen Jacobsen, a St. Marks resident. "We do get water in the yard but luckily our home is okay."

The rain made a pond on a store front on Woodville Highway and some signs were even under water.

Even parts of Leon County is experiencing its own type of flooding here on East Oak Ridge Road.

"We have terrible pot holes," said Rebecca Brown, a Leon County resident. "When it rains it floods, the county has come down and taken a look at it and even put a sign down there that says road under water."

Rebecca Brown has seen many floods on her street on East Oak Ridge Road. The county maintained dirt road is one of the only ones left in the area and she wants it gone.

"At this point, we can drive through it but its very difficult getting back and forth with just a regular car," said Brown. "You almost have to have a pick up truck to get through it."

In Wakulla County some of the flooding on Wednesday drained in the area and did not put a damper on the Forth of July festivities. However, flood warnings continue for folks along St. Marks River.

The National Weather Service advises everyone in the Wakulla County area to take precaution to have your sandbags ready.
