Parts of the city of Robinson, Texas located southeast of Waco, received so much rain Monday night that a RV park had to be evacuated.

Some residents of Flat Creek RV park joked that the water level was so high there that they thought they might have needed an ark to get out safely.

Barbara Chapla, who lives in the RV park, sat up all night with her husband and worried about the storm outside her trailer, but when her power went out she decided it was time to check outside.

“I peak out my back window and the water in underneath us,” said Chapla. “So I go to the door real quick, open it up, and my bottom step is underwater. I say ‘Okay we got to bundle up the dogs and we’re out of here’.”

When those homeowners returned to the property, after the water had gone down, they found some of their lawn furniture and decorations had been carried away by the ravaging waters. They say that was a small price to pay for what could have happened if they were not evacuated.
