No evacuations had been ordered as of Monday.

Tonya Boyer, of Ponce de Leon, said her home off of Charles Rushing Road often become isolated during severe storms. She said as the rain began early Wednesday morning she made her way to the store to prepare for the worst.

“It’s a matter of being prepared and aware of what’s going on,” said Boyer as she stood beside her freshly grated roadway that was damaged during the rain. “I bought eggs, milk, formula. You have to prepare to be stranded. That’s the way we live.”
