As flood victims in the tri-cities clean up after major flooding earlier this week, they're learning the landscape looks a little different.
WCYB reports that many creeks have completely re-routed their paths.
Banks are now eroded, cutting the creeks dangerously close to many homes.
One homeowner says he lost a section of his yard, and the creek is now 30 feet closer to his home. He's worried the next big rainfall will do even more damage.
"It's unsafe, definitely, but it may never come through here again, and I've been in this area for 60 years and it hasn't come through here, and it could come back through tomorrow," said Vestal Freeman, a homeowner.
Fixing the problems will require building new banks. It's a task that could cost thousands of dollars.
Meanwhile, Johnson City students had their first day of school Wednesday. They were supposed to start on Monday, but school officials had to postpone it because of the floods.
