SUNSET VALLEY, Texas -- From raking up the contents of a garage to washing tools, volunteers gathered to help Diana Chafin and her husband sort out the damage from last weekend's flooding.

"They were giving us support, emotional support and physical support," said Chafin.

The Chafins watched last Sunday as Williamson Creek roared by their window, filling their garage with water. The force of the water that collected inside pushed out their garage door.

Chafin says she's thankful the water didn't get into her home. Some neighbors were displaced after the storms. She says she's also appreciative of those who are helping.

We had volunteers from the City of Sunset Valley. We had volunteers from Sunset Valley Elementary, Oak Hill Methodist Church. Traditional Martial Arts Academy came out," said Chafin. She also thanks neighbors and friends who spent the day helping them.

Volunteers cleaned about 20 homes Sunday. Lumber and debris was brought to the city dump, where it will be made into mulch for residents who need it.

"It's a service we give to our residents. We allow them to call in and have mulch delivered, so all of this will be turned into mulch," said Mayor Rose Cardona.
