“Well for me and my two children it’s horrible,” Cameron Street tenant Thelsha Walker said.

Flash floods shocked drivers on North Cameron Street. Several cars faced severe flood damage and needed to be pushed or towed.

Penaloza needed a bucket to bail out his vehicle yet he says things could’ve been worse.

“I am very grateful and very happy, but I do feel bad for others that are going through this situation no one deserves to have their vehicle destroyed in this manner,” Penaloza said.
