BOULOGNE, Fla. -- It's been more than a week since record flooding sent the St Marys River spilling over it's banks. Days later, you can still see the damage.
"We've had a lot of water before, and it's really flooded. But never to that point," said Pastor Terry Yerby.
Every boat ramp in Nassau County is still closed because the river is still around 10 feet above it's normal level. "A few miles away there were several houses that were flooded," said Brooke Yerby.
The Nassau County Emergency Management Agency told Action News that at least 68 homes had some sort of damage. And with the St Marys River still flooded, they expect that number to rise.
"It usually takes about 15 minutes to get to Jacksonville, but it took about 30 to 40 minutes," said Brooke. There is some relief for residents now that there's temporary fix on Highway 301.
The Brandy Branch Bridge washed away during the flood. A new steel bridge opened in it's place Friday. "They worked 24 hours around the clock, and we are grateful," said Brother Terry.
Overall county officials expect damage estimates to be between two to three million dollars. But they are still hopeful, FEMA will help them cover some of those costs.
County officials say they already know where FEMA registration sites could be set up in Nassau. Right now they are just waiting on the okay from the federal government to open them up.
