(Sound of helicopter in background)

What I remember, I heard the phone jingle, I woke up and saw all my neighbors running all around up there. I looked out the front door and saw the water coming so I grabbed the baby and woke up Randy. We grabbed a blanket and housecoat and out the back door we went. By that time, water was knee-deep, we were standing on the tracks and water was going all around us. Everybody was helping everybody. That’s all there was to it, everybody was grabbing clothing from everywhere they could find it. People were helping people get in houses. We came out yesterday morning about 8:30 and my dad and brother were still up there looking for my mom, we haven’t heard anything from her.
