Patricia Long said, "I'm a flood victim, it's horrible, it really is."
Her washer and dryer, downstairs bathroom and carport are all flooded. Long does not have a boat and moved out over a week ago. Now she's relying on family and friends to help her to save the rest of her belongings.
Long said, "It's the home I'm really worried about. I'm a single mom right now with two kids, so its very depressing."
There are similar stories throughout the neighborhood. When record rainfall in the month of October drenched the Ouachita river it flooded Bayou D'Arbonne and streets that connect people in this neighborhood to the highway.
For weeks people who live on Bayou D'Arbonne drive have had to boat down this path to get to home work and school. Resident Rodney Griffin is one of them. He has lived and worked on D'Arbonne bayou for seven years.
Rodney Griffin said, "Its troublesome. Most people are ready for it. But it kind of caught us by surprise this time cause it came up so quick, we had so much rain the river just couldn't handle it."
Now Griffin's business along with some of his neighbors' homes, cars and mailboxes, have water inside.
Long said, "Can you imagine the mess its going to be when all this goes down the trash?" And officials say it could take weeks or months, for all of this water, to go away.
