WARREN COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

People who own homes along Eagle Lake in Warren County are starting to return after flooding impacted their residences.

Highway 61 was opened Wednesday, allowing entrance from the south.

The homes on the lake were not impacted, but many boat houses and piers remain under water. It could be several weeks before the lakefront damage can be assessed.

Most Eagle Lake residents had to spend Memorial Day in other places.

Those who moved out all their furniture are returning with trailers full of belongings, grateful they only have to move, rather than figure out ways to repair a flooded property.
