We’re getting more looks at the scary flooding that caused chaos throughout Texas last week.
In the above video, which has quickly gone viral, a couple’s vacation home in the town of Wimberley is beaten down when the flooding Blanco River comes bursting in, taking out everything in the residence that’s in the path of the raging water. You can feel the fear and shock the couple, who remained upstairs while watching the devastation, must have experienced in that moment.
Homeowners Sarah and Ernie Perez were rescued by boat and are doing okay.

A police spokesman said, “While he was there the water crested the road just to the north of him, and surrounded him before he could get out.”
