Homes, roads damaged after Monday deluge
W 081913 FLASH FLOODS 03
Statesboro Police drive through the flooded parking lot Monday at Fair Road Apartments near the CVS Pharmacy.
Despite torrential rains Monday that flooded roads and homes throughout Statesboro and Bulloch County, only one person took advantage of a shelter provided by the American Red Cross, set up at a local church. “We only had one citizen show up at (Statesboro) First Baptist Church last night, so we closed the shelter, and the Red Cross worked with that person and is getting them taken care of,” Bulloch County Public Safety Director Ted Wynn said Tuesday. In the aftermath of more than 4 inches of rainfall, mostly within two hours’ time and around the Statesboro area, the main damage from the deluge consisted of damaged dirt roads, six of which were still closed Tuesday morning, and low-lying apartment complexes and homes suffering minor flooding.
