HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) — Early Monday morning, the Lakeshore Garden Apartments experienced massive flooding. Residents of the complex were evacuated. Many had to be rescued by boat.
CBS42’s Melissa Kim experienced all of it first hand. Not because she was on the scene reporting, but because Melissa was one of the people evacuated. This wasn’t an assignment she was sent on, this is her life. She lives in the apartments that needed to be evacuated due to the flooding.
She reflects on the surreal moment of being told they need to evacuate, and seeing the waters rise around her apartment complex.
