Gasparillo residents face floods during Sunday rainfall


    Heavy bouts of rainfall over the weekend led to some high flood waters in and around many homes in Gasparillo and Claxton Bay yesterday.

    In Gasparillo, many residents were left cleaning mud and debris from their yards and inside their homes.

    The flooding was so severe that one report stated that cars were almost covered, while furniture and appliances were floating in some cases.

    Residents say they were stranded for several hours until the flooding subsided at sundown.
