Patricia Gause has lived along Highway 378 for the past six years. "The water is not going anywhere. This water has been here ever since October. Ever since October. We need help," said Gause.
It's not just the front yard. Water overtook Gause's backyard too. She says she's afraid every single day the water will come into her home.
Gause has reached out for help. She says, "I did call the mayor and I attempted to talk to the county councilman, and I hadn't talked to the Senator yet, but we need some drainage, we need some help."
Jerry Williams, Emergency Management Director for Marion County says,"It's just something we can't control." He says crews are trying to handle water levels across the county.
Gause says, "We're asking for help."
Unless the water is pumped out of the yards, homeowners say it's not going anywhere. Williams says the roads and bridges crews take advantage of days like when there is no rain to repair flooded roads.
