Flash flooding along Highway 331 in Walton County proved dangerous for some travelers, Tuesday.
Heavy rains saturated the ground in the area, leaving water with nowhere to go.
Waters have rescinded at this time, but with the way our weather has been lately, more rain could be in the forecast and that potentially means more flooding
Walton Emergency Officials are urging people to take precaution when traveling.
"We do what we can, but we can't make people drive safe and that's the whole key here is to drive safe," says Freeport Fire Chief, Al Ford.
Officials had their work cut out for them trying to slow folks down on the water logged roadway.
Reports said the water stood at one foot in some places.
"It only takes a foot of water to wash a car off the road," said Ford.
News 13's cameras rolled as officials from Walton County Sheriff's Office and Freeport Fire arrived on the scene of a weather-related wreck involving a car and a minivan near Ramsey Rd in Freeport.
No serious injuries were reported, but chief al ford said people must pay attention to the weather to avoid accident and injury.
"Be very careful, be very cautious, drive safe, drive slow, and do not drive fast through these puddles. If the water is washing over the road itself, I'd advise, turn around and go another direction," said Ford.
One bystander, Johnny Murray, praised the county's efforts to alert people to the flooding.
"You gotta give your hats off to Walton County. When I was going to work a little while ago, they were putting up a huge lighted sign on both sides of 331," said Murray.
He hopes as this rainy season continues, people heed the county's warnings.
"Hopefully people will listen when they say slow down in the rain, that doesn't mean speed up. Please slow down in the rain," said Murray.
A number of businesses along 331 were also experiencing some yard flooding. News 13 made several attempts to contact them but were unable to reach them.
