By  | 

Parts of Washington County are still struggling to recover from this past summers flooding.

Tuesday they were dealing with it all over again.

Heavy rains overnight have left many residents with flooded yards and roads.

County officials say about 5 to 7 inches of rain fell in a short amount of time.

The central and eastern portions of the county were hit the hardest.

They also say crews have been out since 6:30 Tuesday morning assessing roads and will continue to check road safety for the next couple of days.

Officials say the paved roads are clearing up quicker then the dirt roads which will take more time.
