LONG COUNTY, Ga. (WSAV) — A Long County road has reopened after it was flooded Tuesday morning.

Walthourville Volunteer Fire and Rescue Chief, Anthony Burns, says a nearby pond may have overflowed or part of its wall may have broken away. The overflow of water caused a portion of Tibet Road and the Walthourville Presbyterian Church to flood. 

Several residents who live on Sandy Road road were unable to leave the neighborhood.  

The Walthourville Presbyterian Church located on Tibet road had its grounds flooded as water rushed through the grassy area and ditches.  

Winntown road which sits between two mobile home parks was completely submerged underwater and impassable. The adjacent mobile home parks were partially flooded and made driving treacherous.
