Tropical Depression Debby damaged thousands of homes and washed out roads in Florida.

msnbc.com news staff and news service reports -- Flooding from Tropical Depression Debby damaged thousands of homes, washed out roads, opened up sinkholes and closed a section of Interstate 10 — the state's main east-west highway.

Water was up to the roofs at some homes in low lying areas of Live Oak, Fla., on Wednesday. Several feet of water remained around businesses in downtown near the courthouse and many roads were impassable.

"The water came in so fast last night," said Live Oak resident Jorge Torres. "We were lucky to get out what we could. My shed is under water."
