Camden County is cleaning up still from the flooding last week and hoping the damage doesn’t increase with the next round of rain we’re forecasted for. Just from the perspective of the Road and Bridge Department, Administrator Lee Schuman says they’ve surpassed the amount to seek assistance from SEMA.
Schuman says Sunrise Beach alone received $900 worth of damage to part of their sewer system, which they’ve already repaired. He also says that, overall, the damage could have been a lot worse with the majority of the flooding occurring in the places that flood much easier.
In Miller County, they’ve surpassed two million dollars worth of damage. Emergency Management Director Barlow Biggers says they’re getting some incoming help to continue their assessment.
Amongst the destruction, they report losing two bridges. Biggers says he hopes to see SEMA by the end of the week.
