Home Survives Flash Flood

Posted: Updated:

One family living in Bottineau County found out first-hand about flash flooding this week.

The Hubers live southwest of Westhope and went to bed Tuesday night in their home in a completely dry farmyard.

But they woke up Wednesday to this.

(Sarita Huber, Bottineau County Resident) "My brother-in-law woke us up at a little bit after eight o'clock, we slept in (laughs), and he said do you know your yard is flooded? And I'm like are you kidding? And I look out and yes, it's very flooded."

The Hubers got help from about 50 friends and neighbors to build up sandbags around their home.

Sarita Huber says the house stayed dry - but their garden, that was looking better than ever this year, was drowned out by the flood.

She says it was gratifying to see so many people come and help as the water was threatening the house.
