Unwanted Flood Refugees


A Texas woman whose fenced-in back yard was flooded by waters from Tropical Storm Harvey shared video of an unexpected side effect — swimming alligators. Arlene Kelsch said the inside of her house has managed to stay dry amid the flooding from Harvey, but her yard is under several feet of water. Kelsch posted a video to Facebook showing an alligator swimming in her yard, and she panned the camera to show the gator had been joined by a second gator. The video shows how the floodwaters rose above a section of her fence, allowing the alligators to swim into the pond that used to be her back yard.
