DRENCHED AND FLOODED - Rains are the worst most have seen

Another car pulled up alongside but he couldn't roll down his window or open his door to talk to the person due to the depth of the water.

However, water started coming in the vehicle any way.

Fortunately, a Code Enforcement employee pulled up in his truck to the rescue.

Perry waded through 2-3 feet of water to get into the truck and the Officer took him back to his home in Gulf Place.

Perry moved here from Kansas City 10 years ago and said he has lived a lot of places across the United States, but he has never seen flooding like what he encountered Wednesday morning any place he has lived.

Kathy Martin has lived in South Walton since 1990 and currently lives on Chrysler Avenue in the Daughettes, close to the bay.

When she and her chocolate Lab, Scout, awakened Wednesday morning, the water in her yard was almost up to her knees on her 5-foot 5-inch frame. But when a dog has to go, a dog has to go. So, Scout took off swimming to a little higher ground, but still had to go in standing water.
