Belhaven road floods during downpours, frustrating residents

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - Major frustration for a Belhaven resident Tuesday night.

A pickup truck got stuck in flash flooding on Riverview Drive off Monroe during Tuesday afternoon's heavy rains.

Heather Freeman said the truck belongs to her boyfriend and it's not the first time an incident like this has happened to drivers along this stretch when there's a downpour.

"Anytime it rains, somebody gets stuck and all the police do is put one of these barrels and one of these barricades over here which falls into the puddle and so you can't see it, so especially at night, people get stuck in it, but it's a regular occurrence and they're quite aware of it and have done nothing," said Freeman.

WLBT was unable to reach anyone with the City of Jackson for comment.
