SUMMMERVILLE, SC (WCSC) - A group of people in the Summerville community are safe after the Old Fort Fire Department responded to a call Monday on Twin Lakes Road that turned into a join effort rescue. The water came to a point where people could no longer walk because it came over people's heads.
Officials rescued people from their homes and several animals including horses, cats and dogs.
Residents say the flood waters on Twin Lakes Road took over several homes leaving their property ruined. They say the water reached as high as 8 feet.
Some residents in this area left their homes on Saturday when they say they knew things were getting worse.
Residents who live in this area say the water is still on the rise, but they are thankful to be able to get out safe and have their animals with them too.
