That is exactly what my city is right now. Under water. Flooded. In my nearly 30 years living here, I’ve experienced a lot of rain and many storms, but I have never seen anything like this. My home is currently safe, but other parts of the area are not as lucky. Glued to the TV, I have seen people trapped on the interstate between flooded areas, as well as helicopter and boat rescues. I watched on live TV as a mobile home floated down the interstate and disintegrated as it hit the cars on the road.
We have already been asked to conserve water, because the water plant has been shut off, and to stay home off the roads so rescue crews can work.
This is a photo of my neighborhood Saturday. Cars are driving on the raised median because the road is flooded.
I usually do not like to ask for help, but we really need more assistance here. We need the national news to get the word out. And we need more rescue efforts.
