Iowa subdivision suffers serious flooding

Bookmark and Share

Nichol Guillory, who lives in a subdivision off Dogwood Avenue in Iowa, said her home started taking in water about 8:30 Saturday morning.

"We tried to put a sheet and comforter at the door, but within 10 minutes the water was rushing inside," Guillory said. "Sand bags would not have helped us. There is now a few inches of water in my home."

The subdivision butts up to a gully. Guillory said she has been living there for two years and hasn't had any issues. She said she had no idea it flooded.

"Several other neighbors' homes are flooded. They told me this happened a few years ago. If I would have known, I would not have moved here," she said.

Guillory is now hoping the rain stops and water recedes.

"The damage has already been done. I just hope and pray it doesn't get worse," said Guillory.

The National Weather Service in Lake Charles has issues a flash flood warning for Southwest Louisiana until 6 p.m.
