Floodwaters at Hiddenite Family Campgrounds in Alexander County, North Carolina rose to deadly levels as heavy rainfall, some it the result of Tropical Storm Eta, brought widespread flooding to the Southeast on Thursday. The deluge unleashed inches of rainfall within mere hours in some areas of the state, prompting water evacuations and washing out roadways and bridges.
Videos showed cars nearly submerged at the campground and one story homes turned into islands in the floodwaters from the South Yadkin River near the campground. One of the structures was submerged nearly up to its roof and others saw waters up to their windows. Debris ranging from campers to sheds floated down the swollen river, WCNC in Charlotte reported.
