The sky's opened up and it began to storm. It felt like the storm was directly over our heads. Suddenly our phones started buzzing and announcing there were flash flooding in the area. My son jumped up and looked out the window and announced "Hey Dad, there is a flood outside!" My husband and I looked outside our window and saw the most horrifying sight.
|A wall of water pouring down on parked cars...then it hit us...that is where we parked our mini van!|
|This is the hotel side lot with more rushing water|
|the road in front of the hotel|
|Cars were stuck and people had to be rescued!|
|As soon as the water resided a little we went to the car and attempted to move it to drier land. When we opened the doors water poured out. There must have been a minimum of 18 inches to 2 feet of water inside the van.|
|As quickly as the storm arrived it left after about an hour and the water stopped. This is the wall where our car was parked and you can see the damage done to the retaining wall. Above this retaining wall is another parking lot!|
|The view during the day of the damage done.|
