NLR Dixie community trying to start clean up process after flooding

KNWA

A North Little Rock community is trying to figure out exactly how much damage was left behind from floodwaters.

Several people in Dixie Community said they can’t get to their home because of floodwater.

One man had to park his car about a block away from his house because several roads are still closed.

It’s all teamwork at St. Stephen Missionary Baptist Church in North Little Rock.

“I am very glad and happy that they’re able to help me,” Donald Nicholson said.

” We in the process of moving sandbags, so we can have service tomorrow,” Nicholson said.

The church along with several homes in the community are recovering from the flood.

“I was blessed enough that I didn’t have to evacuate but all my neighbors had to evacuate,” Nicholson said.

Thomas Mcelwee showed us what used to be in front yard on North G Street.

“You see those markings on the lawn that’s how far it got, Mcelwee said.

Poly pipes and sandbags are still around several homes.

“Most of us does not have flood insurance, maybe one or two does but it’s going to be difficult and a long process,” Mcelwee said.

Road are still hard to drive through.

“This water has receded and this is the level of it now,” Mcelwee said.

As water levels drop many people in the tight-knit community are ready things to be back to normal.

“Absolutely I would love too,” Mcelwee said.
