Aug. 28th at approximately 10:45 PM. Approximately 2 inches of water entered the family room and kitchen. The next afternoon a wake from a Texas game warden (I have pictures) rushed through the front door wetting part of the living room carpet.

My exterior water line was just above the first brick above the slab. Received 1 1/2 to 2" of water inside house.

We had 5 inches of water in the house, with 18 inches in the sunken living room. All flooring and 2 feet of sheet rock had to be ripped out, along with furniture and other items, some of them irreplaceable. This damage seems to have been man-made, and everyone I have talked to in the area believes so. Whether it was some release of water upstream or some change in drainage, it seems that someone is responsible. We have lived here for 28 years with no problems and were in a voluntary evacuation zone.

Our family had to evacuate (we waded over, water to the hips) late on Monday August 28 to the Christ United Methodist Church, and we never saw a city official or law enforcement officer. Nobody checked on the neighborhood that we know of. We know of some individuals in kayaks of their own who evacuated the elderly neighbors down the street, but no other first responders showed up. We also have heard nothing from anyone of authority regarding this entire situation.

Time/Date: *August 29, 2017 Tuesday Morning @ 12:12 am
Water came inside from south east side of house from the back yard (power easement behind fence) and corner that backs up to Greenfield Drive dead end. It was from weep holes or patio door. There is a man hole storm drain on the green space that is next to my fence at the dead end.

A rectangle area of 13 ½’ x 4’ (feet) and another 4’ X 2’ (feet) area had water in the carpet – very squishy. A wet vac and dehumidifier used over several days removed the water, drying it out. There was also a bedroom on the north center side of house that had about 1 square foot of water in the carpet – it was only damp and not squishy.

Some water also came into the garage – only 1/3 way covered and less than a ½ - 3/4 inch – it receded very quickly. (later Tuesday morning*.)

Water came up 4/5th of the way in my front yard – backyard was completely flooded up to the foundation/right at brick line.
