STRAWBERRY PLAINS, Tenn. (WATE) - Residents in Jefferson County were still flooded a month after the historic floods in east Tennessee.
At least three houses in Ashley Oaks, a neighborhood in Strawberry Plains off of 11-E, were under several feet of floodwater.
The neighborhood is set up on two hills: a small one going into the area and a larger in the back.
Rebecca Crain, a resident in the neighborhood, said her basement flooded even though she lived at the top of the hill. She said it flooded because her gutters were clogged.
"We got the least of it I guess. The further down the hill you go...I just feel sorry for them," Crain said.
Crain's family had to hire a company to take out some of the drywall and flooring to air out the moisture and clean out possible black mold.
Crain and several other residents though, have to drive through floodwaters to leave their neighborhood.
"Most of the people can't get in and out of here and the ones that are, I'm seeing in big trucks," Crain said.
She said it's been slightly easier for cars to drive through after the highway department placed gravel on a portion of the road.
Some services won't go to the neighborhood.
Crain and a few others neighbors said mail hasn't been delivered to them since the flooding. They have to drive to the post office to get it themselves.
Charles Tipton, the Jefferson County Highway superintendent, said his department is working with emergency management to figure out how to remove the water from the neighborhood. He said at the moment, they haven't been able to find a solution that wouldn't make the situation worse for other people.
