FRANKLIN COUNTY, Fla. -- It has been 12 hour shifts since Sunday for Tom Durham.
"We've been kind of busy here the last couple of days," he said.
Durham works at the Franklin County Emergency Operations Center. He says Tropical Storm Debby has been one of the most difficult storms they've ever had to deal with, mainly because of her unpredictability.
No one knew they'd be dealing with so much rain.
"I've had over 12 inches and there are places further east in the county that have had up over 20 inches of rain," said Durham.
Several yards in Apalachicola have been flooded for the past three days, especially where Sherman Thomas lives.
"Wet, wet, and wet," Thomas said when asked to describe his neighborhood, a part of town notorious for its bad drainage. Locals call it "The Hill."
"The rain has been unforgiving and we've been flooded out in different areas," Thomas described.
Across the bridge, the St. George Island sign never before has seemed so fitting - "The Uncommon Florida." It's an appropriate slogan for a place left completely powerless for the past three days. Even the local convenience stores have closed up shop.
"I'm dealing with a lot of spoilages - ice cream, milk, everything," said Patricia Alred, the manager of a St. George Island convenience store.
St. George Island lost power on Sunday when Tropical Storm Debby knocked three power poles into the bay. Emergency crews are currently working around the clock to repair that damage.
But until power is restored, the island is under mandatory evacuation.
