LOOK: TX Nursing Home Suddenly Flooded By Harvey, Stranding 50+
Residents at a Port Arthur, Texas, nursing home encountered a harrowing scene as floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey suddenly and rapidly appeared in the middle of the night.
A worker told ABC affiliate KTRK that one moment, the facility was dry and by 3 a.m. or so, it began to flood.
Video showed water in the home up to the baseboards of bedridden patients' beds, and a dozen volunteers carrying patients, oxygen tanks and prescriptions out of the building.
"They don't deserve this," the worker said. "I'm 65 years old and I've never seen this much water."
At first, more than 50 people were stranded inside the nursing home.
The Port Arthur city manager told KTRK nearly his entire city is submerged.
