Flood forces Peach County families from apartments

Flash flooding forced six Peach County families out of their apartment complex at 813 Pine St. on Sunday night.

Fort Valley Fire Chief Otis Daniel said the water had receded Monday but at least four of the six apartments are not habitable without extensive cleanup.

The remaining two apartments Daniel said he did not look at Monday morning because the residents were not there.

No one was injured in the evacuation of the families, which included a pregnant woman, Daniel said.

The Central Georgia Chapter of the American Red Cross is providing temporary shelter for the families in local hotels.
