Parts of Taylor County were washed out after the rains that came through last night and throughout the day today.

The hardest hits areas included not only the town of Flemington, but Rosemont as well.

"It floods a good bit around here, but it never gets this bad. I've never seen it this bad, and I've been here for three years." said Eric Moats,
Rosemont Camp resident.

Residents in both of those neighborhoods woke up to find their cars, and their homes underwater. In the Rosemont Camp area of town, neighbors told 5 news that they have never had flooding this bad, or this high within the last 30 years. Now those residents are faced with the long wait for those flood waters to recede, and clean up to begin.

"When we woke up this morning it wasn't really, really high, and the kids went to catch the bus to go to school. Then about an hour later it started rising and just kept getting higher." said Amber Cottrill, Rosemont Camp Resident.

Local officials in the Taylor County area also want to stress to residents that if flood waters have washed out your roadways, or bridges that you immediately turn around and find an alternative route.
