One family’s story of the flooding on bluff springs rd.

Right before Halloween 2013 several areas around the Austin area began to flood. The waters rose to over 6ft and several lives were lost.  My neighborhood was only two streets from one of the disaster areas.  I decided to take a walk down Bluff Springs and met Chris.  He was living in a small rented home with his wife and newborn baby.  He allowed to me enter his home and view some of the damage the flood caused.  This is his story of the events that day. I didn’t go there to preform interviews, just had my camera so I apologize for the sound quality; it is only using the mic on the camera.
