20-25 elderly residents rescued from flooded nursing home in Texas

Houston residents wade through waist high water after Harvey

One of the most compelling images from the flooding in Texas on Sunday, comes from a nursing home in Dickinson.

A group of residents at a nursing home in Texas seemingly going about their business, but with one major difference - they are waist deep in water. The Dickinson, Texas nursing home was inundated with feet of water, and elderly women can be seen sitting in reclining chairs, and even in wheelchairs, with water up to their chests.

Lampson said she returned to the flooded facility on Monday to rescue the cat pictured toward the back of the room in her photo.
