MIDDLEBURG Fla.-- Those who live along the banks of Black Creek agree; you can never be too prepared for a flood.
"Debby caused a heightened state of awareness again and that's a good thing," said Chief Lorin Mock with Clay County EOC.
When Debby dumped record rainfall back in June, it swallowed hundreds of homes. People are still making repairs.
Water levels are normal right now, but the ground is still saturated and the EOC says that just a few inches of rain could quickly become a problem.
"You could get a localized event, and we're not clearly out of the woods from that yet," said Chief Mock.
Concerned neighbors along the creek are ready to go. They've packed their valuables, stacked sandbags and some have already left town, warning others to do the same.
"We're just waiting about the outer bands seeing what they're going to do because this is just notorious for flooding," said neighbor Dennis Boyle.
Sandbag centers are open in Clay County in Orange Park, Middleburg, Fleming Island and Green Cove Springs.
Additional locations are set up in Columbia and Bradford Counties as well.
