Floodwaters in Ala., Ga. Start to Recede

Ad Feedback

Floodwaters in parts of Alabama and Georgia finally started to recede Friday. 

Now residents are faced with the task of cleaning up and salvaging as much as they can from their waterlogged homes. 

Torrential rains caused more than $250 million of flood damage in Georgia alone.
Since Georgia's government is currently broke, the Peach State is hoping the federal government will step in to help. 

Meanwhile, CBN's Operation Blessing is already there, helping bring relief to some of the thousands of people who are in need. 

In the past two days, the aid organization has already delivered more than 92,000 pounds of food, water, diapers and other disaster relief supplies.

Operation Blessing is also helping several families clean up their houses - the first step in rebuilding their homes.
