The sun was out and shining today, but the topic at a local County Commission meeting was anything but sunny.

An emergency meeting was called today to discuss the recent flooding in Madison County.

Emergency Management has been going door-to-door to warn individuals of flood-prone areas.

The Withlacoochee River is near 73 ft, but is expected to crest to 75 ft on Wednesday. The water is rising every day, and people across Madison County are still feeling the effects of last week's rain.

"When I left early about 4 am that morning, I backed out dry. 2:30 when I came back till Sunday, this is what I had," said Barbara Brown, homeowner.

Taylor County also declared a State of Emergency this morning.

Next week, Commissioners will meet again to decide whether or not to extend the State of Emergency.
