CRISFIELD, Md.- Ahead of Florence -- some places on Delmarva, like Crisfield, are still dealing with floodwaters from this past weekend.

William Daughtery, a Crisfield resident, says, "When I got up this morning I was surprised."

That's because the water on town roadways was a bit unexpected. But people in Crisfield have seen flooding like this before.

Lisa Nagley, another Crisfield resident, says, "Nobody really seems to be worried about it. You kind of just adapt to it."

The water started rising Monday afternoon -- after Sunday's downpours. Now, Lisa Nagley is left with a mess.

"It effects things like your toilet it will back up," adds Nagley.

And the water keeps rising.

Daughtery said, "I was surprised about the water and it was nowhere near as high as it was then as it is now."

With more rain expected in the coming days from Hurricane Florence -- tensions are starting to rise.

Nagley said, "If it starts raining for the hurricane it'll really start to get bad."

Some people are already preparing. We spoke with one person who plans to evacuate, but most people are going to stay put.

Nagley says, "You don't know how bad it really can get. That hurricane can shift and just really have no idea. So we got supplies just in case."

For many people here -- flooding is commonplace -- but it's never a bad idea to plan ahead. Some of the schools in Crisfield were closed Tuesday due to flooding.
