This time last month flooding was only a thought. The people of Blakeley in Scott County didn't know they'd be forced out of their homes. The town was evacuated and roads were closed.

So how are things today? Many are still cleaning up and power, phone, and water are back on. Some are moving out of town after the flood while others don't know what they will do.

"It's reshaping the community. It makes you think. We talked both ways. Do we stay? Do we go? What do we look at doing," said homeowner Rachelle Kerkow.

Two of the four roads into town are still closed.  About 50 people live in Blakeley.
