JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -
It's been more than six months since Hurricane Isaac drenched the Gulf Coast devastating homes and lives. The rising waters in August left people stranded and waiting to be rescued in Jackson County's Helena community. Then, there was the difficult job of cleaning up. Tuesday, some residents in the area gave us progress report on recovery.
It's a good day for storm victim Lynn Ware. Volunteers are helping him rebuild.
"I would be loss without them," said Ware.
Ware moved in to his home a month before Isaac soaked it and hundreds of others in the Helena Community.
"In this neighborhood, everyone was flooded except for three homes," said Ware.
Even with flood insurance, Ware said cleanup has been a challenge.
"I have an extra mattress to put on the floor for my daughter and her husband," Ware said about his home.
Ware is not the only one still recovering, there are piles of construction material that show residents building back from the storm. Trailers and dumpsters are also scattered throughout the community as people continue to pick up the pieces.
"It is still slow. There are two homes down the street that just got their roof put back on them last week, and I am not even sure that they have done anything on the inside yet," said Ware.
A few miles away, Melba Kelton's home was also flooded. Since the storm, the cleanup has become a family affair. Although Kelton is making progress, six months of being out of her home is very frustrating.
"We had flood insurance, but it is still hard getting your money as you need to and trying to recover by yourself is hard," Kelton said.
But the storm victim refuses to let her frustration blur her focus.
"This is my kids and my grandkids' home. We wanted to be back in for Christmas and now we are shooting for Easter," said Kelton about a possible move in day.
A new and improved home is also Lynn Ware's prayer.
"I can't wait until I can get it all back to normal and living normal again."
