MACCLENNY, Fla. -- Just as the sun could be seen reflecting off the water-coated streets, David Rewis hopped into a boat just to cross his front yard.
"Just coming out and getting what I need to eat and go back," he said.
"This is the worst I've ever seen by far," said his neighbor James Bowen.
Tropical Storm Debby forever changed life here along the St. Marys River, where water levels have surged to historical heights. On Thursday, the river crested at 24.2' shattering the all-time 23.2' record from 1964.
On Steel Bridge Road, or what's left of Steel Bridge Road, that's where we met Rick Ehre.
He lives just past the submerged stop sign.
"About a quarter mile down from what used to be the road," he describes.
Thursday night, with rolled up pants, Ehre came to see if his house was still there. He had to take a boat.
Everywhere you turn houses, even some on stilts, sit underwater. Many have had to move valuables to the roof.
Since Monday, Ehre has been living in a motel. This was his first time checking in on his property since the river crested. And turns out, he's one of the lucky few.
"It's dry inside," he exclaimed.
Two inches to spare, but too close to keep him here for much longer.
Rick and his family have decided to move.
Since the storm hit, about 100 people in Baker County have evacuated.
The river flood emergency for the St. Marys River has been extended until 10 p.m. Friday.
