The waters of Chickamauga creek have been creeping into roads, yards. and neighborhoods all day.
Police have been patrolling the closed streets to make sure people don't drive through the flood waters.
Even with barricades on flooded roads, Marvalene Gordon says she's still seen plenty of people make a go for it.
"Cars can't go through. They get stuck. They just have someone come and help them get out," said Gordon.
Gordon is like many people nervously watching the water come closer and closer to their doorsteps.
East Chickamauga Creek rose more than four feet Tuesday.
The National Weather Service predicts it will rise another half a foot before it crests early Wednesday morning.
"I've been watching it a lot yea. I watch it all the time while I'm at work. We keep an eye on it because we park right here and we have to go out. So we have to make sure we're okay."
She says flooding is pretty common on Miller street...and she'd like to see the problem fixed.
"I hope they hurry up and do something about it because it's been happening in the past two years I've been here. We have cars stuck there and they need to do something about it."
