We keep hearing story after story of people’s crazy experiences while having to evacuate their homes from the rising flood waters. It is a miracle that not more people were killed. The worst part of the flooding was between 1am and 5am, so most of the people were asleep and woke up to the flooding.
One story we heard was a couple living in a mobile home. The water rose so fast that they weren’t able to get out of the house. The flood waters rose to within 18 inches of the ceiling, and this couple was stuck in the flood waters like that for approximately two hours, not knowing if their mobile home will wash away at any time. Eventually, the waters went down enough for them to get out, but they still had quite the experience yet to get to safety.
