ERT's assist a Family devastated by Flood Waters


 

While the rain appeared to be nothing unusual when this family looked out the window, upstream a Disaster was brewing. Heavy rains along the Gonzales/Wilson county line was causing the stream behind their house to rapidly rise. Within minutes water was entering the house and the homeowner rushed his family to escape down their road. Fortunately, all were able to make it out safely, but their home sustained significant water damage. ERT’s were able to remove the wet, soggy drywall and enable the family to return to their home, from their temporary shelter.
