Many residents in Arab spent Thursday picking up the pieces left behind by Wednesday's floods.

“The water was over the driveway last night. It started at 9 o'clock and lasted way past 12,” said Sid Tidmore, a homeowner in Arab.

Homes didn't receive much damage, but several front lawns were littered with debris Thursday.

Tidmore said he’s lived in Arab for quite a while, and this is by far the worse he’s seen the impacts of rainfall.

“From back up that way they brought these big logs ... and on the other side you can see it stripped away the grass and everything you see on the other side of the creek,” said Tidmore.

His fence, which keeps his cows from getting out, also was lifted out of the ground.

The rain also ripped up grass and pushed it back from a nearby creek.
