After being washed away by violent floods in Dallas, a MOTHER OF THREE was killed.
Joleen Jarrell, a 60-year-old Uber driver, passed away on August 22 while speaking with her husband on the phone.
Prior to losing service in Mesquite, she notified him that her water level was at her ankles.
Dramatic images depict her vehicle on its roof among downed trees.
According to Jarrell’s friends, it was her husband who initially noticed the SUV close to a bridge.
On Monday, more than 11 inches of rain lashed Mesquite.
As the storm arrived, dozens of Dallas streets flooded, trapping drivers inside of stranded vehicles.
Firefighters jumped into action to help Texans whose homes had flooded.
Additionally, video that was posted on social media showed motorists swimming in floodwater as night descended on the city.
I’ve never had an event like this in my life, Brittany Taylor said to CNN.
She acknowledged that she had only moved into her flat two days before to the flooding.
Taylor’s home began to leak when she was awakened by the rain and was unable to go back to sleep.
“All the cardboard boxes started crumbling, and a lot of my stuff started crashing into the water,” she recalled. I misplaced a tonne of stuff.
As the city was pummelling by torrential rain, drivers were advised against using the roads.
As he was getting ready for a live bulletin, FOX reporter Robert Ray assisted a driver in getting out of their car.
She really pulled in without my knowledge as I was setting up for the shot, he claimed.
“Her automobile was floating the next thing you knew,”
