Homeowner faces flooding issue

MERIDIAN, Miss. (WTOK)- A homeowner can't step in his yard without getting his feet soaking wet because of a flooding issue.

Normally you wouldn’t recommend driving through a pool of ran and especially walking in it from your front door. Well, rain from this morning covered homeowner Jayme Wheat’s entire yard on Weldwood Drive. Wheat says he’s been having this problem for four years and the cause of it is old storm drainage.

“They need to install an updated drainage system and my driveway needs a new cover pipe. Everything is flooded. My house is flooded on the inside and basically I’m tired of it,” homeowner Jayme Wheat.

Wheat also says it will take about three days for the water to recede and have full use of his yard.
