RAIN FELL HARD AND FAST IN JACKSON... WHILE THE COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT HAD NOT DAMAGE REPORT TO SPEAK OF... THIS INTERSECTION OF DOUGLAS AND WEST FLOODED, SLOWING TRAFFIC TO A CRAWL.

FURTHER SOUTH, THIS GAS STATION HAD TO CLOSE BRIEFLY BECAUSE OF THE STANDING WATER AT THE PUMPS.

IN THE HANOVER AREA, THE RAIN FLOODED FRONT LAWNS AND CAUSED STANDING WATER IN SOME ROADWAYS.

AND THIS CEMENT CITY RESTARAUNT BECAME A MAKESHIFT SHELTER

Jeff Reichel, Artisains Sports Den - About 20 or 30 people went down into our basement and we took care of them

ONE OF THOSE COMING IN FROM THE RAIN WAS TONY WHITE

Tony White - I was on my way to my aunt and uncles and my truck almost flipped because of the wind, and I came here because I didn't think I'd make to my aunt and uncle's

WHILE MOST OF THE RAIN HAS NOW PASSED... MANY IN THE AREA ARE STILL TRYING TO DRY OUT.

Reichel - We've got three pumps going but we're dry.
