PASCAGOULA, MS (WLOX) -

Pascagoula residents woke up Monday morning to dry ground after a long night of intense rainfall that caused a good bit of flooding.

The heaviest hit areas included streets along Ingalls Avenue and Old Mobile Highway. Some neighbors on King James Drive said they haven't seen this kind of flooding since Hurricane Katrina.

First Presbyterian Church saw flood damage throughout much of its education wing.

Church staff members say volunteers from around the community came to help clean up overnight. Now, they're confident the repairs and cleanup will be finished before next Sunday.

Jonathan Brannan will have more on the effects of the flooding in Pascagoula tonight on WLOX News and WLOX.com.
