Gunter leaving some residents out to dry

By  | 

GUNTER -- After flash flooding last night in Gunter, some residents are asking the city for maintenance on the drainage ditches.

Several hours worth rainfall created what looked like moats around homes. But some residents say the drainage ditches in town aren't properly maintained and build-up inside those drains doesn't help when there's flooding.

Homeowner John Rogers had eight to ten inches of water submerging acres of his property.

"It's rained for three or four hours, and the City of Gunter has not maintained the drainage ditches that can accomodate this water volume."

Our calls to Gunter officials were not returned this morning.
