Families Homeless After Flood Water Pushes Them Out of Apartments

BETHEL TOWNSHIP -- Dozens of families at the apartments on Gerlaugh Road are homeless after flood waters took over their apartment complex.

"This is horrible," said Joshua Webb, as he looks at the water.

Dozens of people in disbelief as they look at the water that's destroyed everything these families own.

"I cannot believe this, oh my gosh," said another woman.

Several feet of water is slowly draining out of the parking lot, but for those waiting to get inside their homes, it's not fast enough.

"If I go back there and that water is any higher than what it was when I left, I don't know what I'm going to do," said Ashley Hudak, flood victim.

Ashley Hudak waded through the water overnight with her fiance and two kids, but had to leave her wedding gown and bridesmaid dresses behind.

She ties the knot in just one month.

"I'm trying really hard not to be upset, not to freak out over everything," said Hudak.

But no reason to get upset, we found her fiance behind the apartments, wedding gown and dresses in hand.

He waded through the water to their apartment just to get it out.

And this man walked through the waist deep water to get some of his belongings out.

He shared these pictures of the inside of his home with us.

His fridge, turned on its side and open, his couch floating in the water, and his bed soaked.

"I just feel so bad you know what I mean, this is just devastating you never think this kind of thing happens to us, people like this, so close to home," said Webb.

Joshua Webb felt bad for these families and offered his help.

"I just felt like I needed to come out here and do something," said Webb. "They need all the help they can get right now."

The Red Cross is at a local church right now helping the people who live here.

We've heard that you're not supposed to drink or spend too much time in flood water, so we took a sample to get tested to find out what's exactly in this water.
