At approximately 3:24 a.m., Brazil City officials confirmed to The Brazil Times that floodwaters began receding in some areas, including State Road 59, south of Pinckley Street.
However, Brazil City Fire Chief Jim Smith said he still encouraged residents to take caution when traveling side streets south of United States 40 as some low-lying areas were still covered.
Early Wednesday morning, city officials and the American Red Cross were assisting approximately 10 individuals who were displaced from the Vine Street area due to excess flooding.
It was estimated that approximately one-and-a-half inches of rain fell during a 30-minute period around midnight, causing flash flooding in storm sewers in the southern half of Brazil.
Members of the Brazil Wastewater Department were attempting to access lift stations in the city to expedite the drainage process.
The State Highway Department temporarily closed access to SR 59 at the intersection with Jackson Street. Officials confirmed traffic from semis through the area helped force floodwaters into nearby homes. The roadblock was lifted, however, shortly after 3 a.m.
