2 flooded bridges keep families from traveling

BOLLINGER COUNTY, MO (KFVS) -

Two flooded bridges keep families from going anywhere. Residents say it is a common sight to see the flooding when there's a lot of rain.

Residents say there are three families that live between that bridge, and another in Cape Girardeau County that prevents them from getting out.

"Typically when we start seeing rain in the forecast we know that we've got to make sure all medications are in the house, all groceries are in the house," said Ashley Chapman. "There are times, even thought we know how it rains, we still have to get out."

One resident has epilepsy and another family have school aged children that they can't get to school sometimes.

Chapman says she is scared if someone has an emergency, they won't be able to get out.
