Floodwaters Strand Couple
Updated: Tuesday, May 28 2013, 10:29 AM CDT
LE MARS, Iowa (AP) -- A northwest Iowa couple have been rescued from their home after it was surrounded by rising floodwater from a nearby creek.
Stephanie Luecke says she and her husband, Ray, had never seen Willow Creek rise so quickly near their home off Iowa Highway 3 on the northeast side of Le Mars. She says the water "surrounded us like an island."
Water was creeping up the front porch by the time rescue workers arrived at 12:30 p.m. Monday.
The Lueckes expect to spend three days at a nearby motel but don't know what they'll do next. Stephanie Luecke says she and her husband are wondering what they'd done "to deserve this."
Officials say Le Mars got nearly 4 1/4 inches of rain over the weekend.
