CLAY COUNTY, Fla. -- Cody Cole isn't letting Debby be a downer. When waters rose and his truck got stuck he hopped on board "Cherokee River" and hit the road.
"My whole yard/property is flooded," he said.
Cole and his horse have been to Winn Dixie, the bank even the drive through of McDonald's!
Debra Sigmund wishes she had that kind of transportation. When County Road 218 buckled Tuesday night, it eliminated every chance she had of getting out of her small Clay Hill neighborhood.
"We're out of luck. We have no way in, no way out and no help," she said.
The open crevice is expected to take days, maybe even weeks to repair. Crews believe back to back blows from Beryl and Debby was too much for the pavement. 218 is a major thoroughfare in Middleburg that runs east to west but without it, people will have to re-route.
Cole says he and his old war buddies will adjust and continue to do what they have to do to get by.
"I have lots of help because I'm with the Vietnam Veterans of America Association. We started a new chapter here in Clay County, and we're helping each other out and everything," he said with a smile.
If you need help or rescue out of your home call the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
Crews can only do operations during the day, so make sure you reach out to them before nightfall.
