TRINITY, Fla. - Trudy Acevedo is trying to stay positive, even after Tropical Storm Debby and the rain that followed. It flooded her home. "The good thing was the bedroom furniture that I've been wanting to get rid of, I got rid of it."
Not only did flood water ruin much of her furniture. But it also damaged the walls, and destroyed the carpet.
A crew spent much of Wednesday replacing tile in the bathroom.
"Six inches got into our home and our home was not the only one, there were several up and down."
The Thousand Oaks subdivision in Trinity was just one of many around Pasco County to be hit hard by flooding.
Parts of New Port Richey, Moon Lake, and Port Richey were under water after the storm.
In some areas, water hung around for weeks. And the ground is still saturated as concern grows another storm could be headed this way.
Pasco's Emergency Management Director, Annette Doying, says the water table is already full and another storm would mean serious trouble for those already affected by the last go-round.
"Those families are likely to suffer again or suffer more and we are likely to see new areas of the county that emerge as flooded areas," said Doying.
At Trudy's house, she's anxious to get things back to normal, but that might hard to do as she watches Tropical Storm Issac's projected path.
"What goes through your mind as you see that?"
"Total fear," she said. "Is it going to happen again? Are we going to be out of the house again?"
