A flood in east Texas broke a 130-year-old record as the Sabine River reached a crest of 33.24 feet Tuesday night. Residents of Deweyville, Texas, were under a mandatory evacuation order, but one family knew exactly where the record flood level was, and decided to ride out the flood on their roof. Jamie Holden and his son lifted electronics, appliances, furniture, supplies, and a generator to the roof of their new house and have been living up there for four days. This picture makes it look like paradise, and this one gives you another perspective on the flood. Holden also winched the front of his truck up in a tree to protect it from flooding.
