Scorpion Airboats underwater

Post by ShesaScorpion »

Please everyone keep my parents Lee and Judy Hancock in you thoughts and prayers. Yesterday we had a flash flood and it took the house, shop and everything. Thank God everyone got out safely though.

Went to see Lee and Judy this evening. I couldn't see their house and the shop is completely under water up to the roof. Water came in very quickly (several feet per hour) Probably 15 feet of water on their property. They had time to gather dogs, photos, and not much else. This is a total loss and they no longer have a home or business. This is going to be a difficult time. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Wow, had no idea it was that bad, I assumed it was 4 or 5 feet at the worst. So sorry for you losses. If you guys need any help once the water has receded let us know.
