Lafayette County still dealing with flooding issues

Mayo — Lafayette County continues to deal with flooding issues from recent rains that have saturated the area.

According to local officials, the pumping station on CR 300 is still operational due to the continued flow of flood waters from the south. Residents said after last weekend’s rains water was across the roadway again in certain areas.

The erosion on CR 416 appears to have somewhat leveled off, officials said. Duke Energy was called concerning a recently replaced light pole on CR 416, wherein they responded and applied some bracing to it.

Additionally, representatives from FEMA and the state performed a Public Assistance Damage Assessment on May 27 and the county is currently awaiting their response.
