The rain on April 2-3, created numerous problems for the Carroll County. Carroll County Judge-Executive Bobby Lee Westrick said there was devastation from Locust to Ghent after the storm.

“Locust was the hardest hit area,” he said.

County Road Supervisor Gene Clayton concurred, saying at the fiscal court meeting April 14, that all of the water rolling through there clogged the culverts with debris. Magistrate Floyd Bowling reported 3 feet of water coming down Locust.
