JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

After clogged drains flooded Mimosa Drive, residents decided to give 3 On Your Side a call, after calls to the city only provided a temporary solution.

The road was completely covered Monday after rain spread through the area.

Shenneka Fisher who lives on the corner near Cedars Of Lebanon road said, "The city they'll come there's two drains on each side they'll come and they'll clear the drains out but it will be right back like it is now."

The water was over a foot deep in some places. Only owners of big trucks are brave enough to venture through the lake.

Some residents are even cut off from their own driveways.

"It's really aggravating cause I have to figure out how I'm going to get out of our yard to pick up my daughter from school it's really aggravating," said Fisher.

The city said they would notify the Public Works Department to clear the drains.

By mid afternoon they had not arrived, so 3 On Your Side had no choice but to grab a stick and clear the drains before the flooding got any worse.

Within five minutes we had moved the leaves and debris and had the water quickly draining.
