SUNSET VALLEY, Texas -- Raging Williamson Creek tore through Sunset Valley.
Council member Mickie Powers was among 20 or so people evacuated. She said she was about to go bed, then saw firetrucks outside.
"My neighbors were being helped, pulled out of their house. They had four feet of water in their house," said Powers.
She spent the night at Sunset Valley City Hall where there were cots set up.
Back home Sunday around 9 a.m., she showed KVUE how the water flattened the plants in her backyard. The high water left debris high in trees.
"I have lived here since 1976 and I have not seen it this high personally," she said.
Melissa Gonzales was also among those evacuated. Now back home as well, she was checking out the damage in Valley Creek Park on Reese Drive.
"The playground is pretty destroyed. People's fences down, horses are loose. People's animals are missing," said Gonzales.
Sunset Valley police also made a water rescue, early Sunday morning, injuring the chief.
"The Westgate bridge not built big enough to accommodate this big of a flow," said Powers.
She says the bridge will be brought up in council.
