Area Flooding with pics

Monday, July 01, 2013

This past week we have got way to much rain, when it started I thought well we need the rain everything was extremely dry, well we got way more than we needed. I have never seen my hometown flood like this. We had an area flood in '96 (I think) but it didn't affect my childhood area where this one did so it hit closer to home for me. This flood did not affect my home other than a little water in my basement but no damage, but I did have friends who lost personal items that can not be replaced.

This is the baseball field, all you can see is the top of the dug out and part of the scare board.

Grocery store parking lot

Gas station completely underwater

This makes me sick, so sad to think of how many people lost so many irreplaceable items.

railroad tracks underwater

Some people had to be rescued by small boats

It is horrible to see this on the news, but when it hits so close to home and people you know are affected by it there are no words to describe it. My children were in shock to see the damage from this storm, and then to drive by now and see all the dumpsters from people cleaning up and everything that they lost, it is so tragic.

    So sad and tragic. I can't imagine losing so much, so quickly. Too bad Arizona didn't get some of this. Horrible tragedies all over lately.

    Glad you and your family are safe and sound though.

    So frightening! We've got flooding up here too... Two towns severely affected, one woman AND her trailer/home still missing after several days. Stores and homes ruined.

    We must be thankful for all that remains... Hard when seeing such loss, too!

    Wow! It really shows you the power of water. I really hope that your town gets all the assistance it needs to recover. Many blessing to you and your town. emoticon
