OXFORD, Ala. (WIAT) -- Many people across the state of Alabama are cleaning up from flash flooding that took place on Wednesday.
In Oxford, many cars and businesses were under water. One of those businesses, the Liberty Inn, was impacted mightily.
The business is located off of Hamric Drive in Oxford, and the staff has done a lot of work since Wednesday's storms passed.
The water was ankle deep in rooms. As a result, the carpet had to be pulled up in more than a dozen rooms.
"It had been up on the sidewalk for a while, but then [the water] started coming through the doors," Liberty Inn General Manager David White said. "It flooded the owner's room. It was about ankle deep."
White says 200 square feet of carpet has been pulled out of 13 rooms since Wednesday. A small wooden bridge even washed up into the draining ditch from the church next door.
"We're pressure washing all the mud out. We moved thousands of pounds of debris out of the ditch so we can get our system flowing again, and it's been hard. We put in a lot of hard hours," White said.
On Thursday, fans were going in a number of rooms in an attempt to dry them out as quickly as possible.
