MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities say flooding in parts of Shelby County has forced some residents to evacuate their homes.

Bob Nations is director of the Shelby County Office of Preparedness.

He says Memphis firefighters rescued seven residents from a mobile home park after rising water got inside their trailers. Victims were taken to a nearby shelter.

A few miles away in southeast Shelby County, officials say high water forced some residents to remove furniture from their homes.

Nations says representatives from law enforcement agencies are monitoring the water and patrolling neighborhoods throughout Shelby County to assist residents if needed.
