A walk through Lacy Pryor’s childhood home in Maysville shows you, some memories don’t fade away. But this weekend they came close when water came pouring through the front door.

“I remember once when I was little, it almost getting to the house, but never anything like this,” said Pryor.

The home is now soaked and growing mold.

Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes says at least 15 people were displaced as a result of the floods. He says the worst hit was Maysville, with more than two feet of water in places.

“It was very busy, very hectic, very difficult for emergency responders to get around because of the high water,” said Rhodes.

The water ripped away asphalt and closed roads. Many are worried what future forecasts may bring as city and county officials monitor water levels.
