Flooding: Hundreds Forced to Move Homes in Carrollton

Residents at the Sandy Lake RV Resort in Carrollton acted on warnings from police and fire officials this morning. A majority of the 270 units evacuated to the parking lot a nearby furniture store anticipating Saturday mornings heavy rain. Carrollton Police say six units decided to stay until conditions got too dangerous this morning when Elm Fork rose too quickly, prompting police and fire to help with evacuations at the RV resort. Due to the swift rise of the Elm Fork nearby the remaining residents were rescued in rafts. Police say the last time the RV park flooded was 1990. The RV park is located off Sandy Lake Road between I-35E and the George Bush Turnpike. Carrollton's city emergency management estimates it could be days before the water recedes and longer for the park to be deemed liveable again.
