Flash Flooding Hits Leake County

Posted: Updated:

Thursday flashing flooding hit Leake County hard. It forced the closure of streets in Carthage and left behind a big mess for some businesses.

A &O tire and muffler shop near downtown Carthage was completely inundated with close to a foot of water.

Employees tell us equipment and machines inside the building were damaged.

Office manager Lisa Taylor says she was forced to flee the rushing waters.

Taylor was not injured, but she was worried that the shop's kitten didn't survive the flood.   

A few hours after the waters receded, the little feline emerged from upstairs meowing.
