BAKER COUNTY, Fla.-- Korey and Ronald Johnson are trying their best to pick up the pieces.
Like many others around the St. Mary's River...their family's home is a complete loss.
"We saves a few things, but not as much as we lost," Korey said.
The Johnson brothers' biggest scare came with their dad. He was bedridden, at home with cancer when the waters rose. When the river got up to his bed...he finally agreed to leave.
"He can barely get around as it is. Good thing I come out before the storm. God knows I wasn't thinking it was going to flood like this. Just came up to spend time with him and I'm looking out for disaster," Korey continued.
"I' just thank God he's ok and no one lost their life," Ronald said.
Today, the brothers tried to pack up what they could and access the damage. Surprisingly, the home still had power...but a pick up truck was destroyed, and streets literally became a part of the river."
"Freezers floating inside. You got food and trash floating out the windows," Ronald said.
The Johnson patriarch is doing ok under the circumstances, but he may not be able to return him for quite some time. Korey says they're blessed no one was killed...and will take that piece of good news going forward.
"Just keep our head up and try to rebuild," Korey said.
