The rain has not only affecte farmers, but homeowners as well.
Sharon Gustat's property is under water.
"It started about six weeks ago there was a bad storm and it rained for a couple of hours and we watched the water from over there start and it make it way over here when my ditches filled up I began to get a little panicky," said Gustat.
And she has reason to panic.
"My son has to carry my grandson out to the street for the bus every morning and every afternoon, he can't walk it it is way too deep for him," said Gustat. "I'm worried that we are going to have water moccasins because they have been found in the property next door, I'm worried that it is going to get deep enough to bother any plumbing that is underneath the trailer its covered my water line I don't know how long it can stand having all this pressure under it."
No one seems to know who is responsible.
"We have talked to the mayor about it and she has come out here and seen the situation and she has not done anything about it she says it is not her responsibility," said Bonnie Hope, neighbor. "I talked to the mayor's husband the other day after I had made a call to her and he said 'doesn't your trailer have wheels' i said 'I think so' he said 'push it to a dry spot'."
"No body wants to take responsibility they just want to pass the buck," said Gustat.
