DRAMATIC VIDEO: Flash Flood Turns TX Home Into “Gigantic Washing Machine”
WIMBERLY, TEXAS – May 28 – (UPI) — A Texas family whose home was caught in the Blanco River flood recorded the moment their home became “a gigantic washing machine.”
Sarah Perez of Wimberly posted a video to YouTube showing the moment floodwater from the overflowing Blanco River rushed into her family’s home Saturday.
“Oh no!” Perez can be heard saying in the video, which was filmed from the home’s second floor.
“It turned the living room into a gigantic washing machine,” husband Ernie Perez told CNN.
The family was rescued by a fire crew in the area to check on an elderly neighbor.
“We see flashing lights in the distance. We saw a fire crew with two trucks and a boat.,” Ernie Perez said. “My brother whistles and gets their attention.”
