A rise in temperatures and water levels brought back a flood of memories for some people in Fayette County Thursday.
"When it starts raining, we all get excited," Former Pax Mayor Peggy Sasser explained. "We get jittery. We never know what's gonna happen, because it's been in my house."
A little less than two years ago, Sasser and her husband woke up to find themselves on an island.
By the time rescuers got to her, the water was up to her chest.
As flood waters washed out several roads again Thursday, she feared the worst.
"I don't want to have to move everything," said Sasser. "I just got new furniture a year and a half ago. I don't want to have to go through that again."
People in Pax may have some experience when it comes to picking up the pieces.
"We've had flooding here twice," Chester Holloway, of Fayette County, said, "where this little creek right here would come up and get inside this house right here, which is 4-feet above the creek right now."
But Chester Holloway says there could be an easy fix.
He believes the problem lies in a lack of storm water management.
"All the water we're getting here is running from Beckley right down here, and it's not being held somewhere and controlled," Holloway said.
West Virginia National Guard members were brought in back in March of 2010 to help clean up debris in hard-hit areas.
And Thursday, people faced difficulty getting in and out.
Several schools dismissed early in Fayette and surrounding counties.
For Peggy Sasser, it's a nightmare she doesn't want to re-live, but all she can do is wait.
"I'll be up tonight too," Sasser added. "I'm used to it."
