Stories from the Port Carbon Flood

Mr. Schuttler, the middle school’s librarian, is a volunteer firefighter. He said, “We got called down to the station. We were going around … house to house trying to get to people who had been affected by the flood, out of the flood. Once the water receded, then we switched to pumping  out basements. We pretty much just set up teams going house to house trying to get to get the water out of their basements, and we did that for the rest of the week. It was a flash flood, so the water came up, flooded, and then dropped again. So once everyone was safe, we had to switch to getting them back to together again. We had to set up a shelter. Some people were in the shelter for a few hours. They assembled a food pantry in town for the people who lost most everything in the flood. Once the basements were done, it switched to some workers coming in and cleaning up all the debris.”
