Locals wait for rivers to recede

Published April 04, 2009 - The News Herald
Emergency Officials in four local counties reported that it will probably take about a week for the Choctawhatchee River to recede and for those who evacuated to get back home. However, with another inch of rain expected on Sunday, the situation could get worse before it gets better, local officials warned.

The rivers in Calhoun County still have not crested, Emergency Management Coordinator Angie Smith said Saturday afternoon. The Chipola was expected to crest at 6 p.m. Saturday night and the Apalachicola will crest on Monday, Smith added.
