Larry Carter said, "It's finally coming down. Folks been living tough down here, but they've got to move past it now."
For people living in flooded homes in the West Sterlington neighborhood Nine Oaks Plantation--moving past it means ripping up damaged floorboards.
Wayne Farmer said, "Clean-up, clean-up, replace everything."
Wayne Farmer has lived in Nine Oaks for over a year. This is his first major flood.
Farmer said, "It's probably going to cost me cause I don't have insurance on the bottom floor."
Like many of his neighbors, flood water covered the lowest level of farmers home and rose 16 inches inside. He and Carter are still boating around their neighborhood. Carters says they'll have to wait for the water to go down ten more feet. Then they'll be able to drive flood damaged material out and bring new building materials in.
Carter said, "The worst is over as long as it doesn't come back."
