Residents Getting Back In Homes After Evacuation

Some residents in Troup are getting back into their homes Saturday, after having to evacuate Friday. The Branscum Family lives off of Old Tyler Highway.  To get to their home, they have to drive an ATV through their flooded driveway.  Luckily, everyone, including their pets, made it out safely Friday, and their home did not flood.  They did, however, lose some of their chickens.

"We just assumed it was way up in the house and thank the Lord, with lots of prayers and miracles, it's [water] not in the house," said Homeowner Cynthia Branscum.  The Branscums say the street in front of their house has flooded in the past, but never anything like they saw Friday.
