Providing a personal account, National Geographic photographer Erin Trieb documented her experience moving her Mom to drier ground as the water began seeping in. Mom had three dogs.

She then waded through chest-deep water to get to her sister's house and described the scene in her Nat Geo story: "I can only remember hearing the chirping of frogs," she said. "Birds were quiet. The wind wasn't blowing hard. There was a strange and still effect all over the neighborhood." Her video, posted on YouTube.

I remember the flood we were in (Mom, my brother and I) when I was in grade school, about 8 years old. Water left everything coated with several inches of mud. Ruined the car, furnishings, appliances, clothes, toys - house. Mom cut her foot, stepping into my bike wheel (unseen and blocking the entry door) when she carried us out of the house through chest-high flood water. Coming down the stairs from my upstairs bedroom, Mom had to coax me to get into her arms in the cold, muddy water. I looked over to see the refrigerator door standing wide open, light on, water half-way up the door. Ketchup and condiments lined neatly in the door shelf, surreal. Memories like that fade but they don't go away. We walked up the hill to the neighbor's dry house. 20 minutes later, the water had gone. Mom lost everything.
