Flood Damage

Businesses in Henderson County are watching their profits float away after flood waters move in. More than six inches of rain fell in Zirconia Wednesday night. That caused the Green River to spill it's banks.

The floods destroyed crops and closed down a lumber yard. High waters knocked down the fence Allen Greene uses to pin up his cattle. Swift waters also put the land Joe Maybin leases underwater.

Lois Bayne owns a nursery near Bob's Creek Road. She says mother nature did a number on her business. She says it also ruined other farmers beans and tomato crops.

But just down the road at Whole Log Lumber, the flood waters may have gotten the best of Jim Stowles and his crew. He says the water moved in so fast, everyone had to climb on metal racks for safety. Workers spent the day trying to salvage wood and equipment. Whole log lumber will be closed for the next 10 days or so.

One farmer says they've lost up to $20,000 in crops due to the rain.
