WASHINGTON COUNTY, Tenn. - Two years ago rushing flood waters swept through part of our region devastating a Washington County, Tennessee community.
The flood in the Dry Creek section of the county wiped out homes and displaced families but now there are signs of progress. Two weeks ago, a major bridge on Rock House Road, destroyed in the flood, was replaced.
The Appalachia Service Project is now repairing many homes for low-income families.
We're told two homes are currently under construction and there are plans to rebuild 10 other homes in the area.
