In Robeson County community just off Interstate 74, families were rescuing other family members using nothing more than a four wheeler while others were trapped in a home.

“My grandma and others, they are trapped in the house,” said Kerri Freeman.

Freeman couldn’t get close to his 70-year-old grandmother and other relatives who were trapped by the flood waters.

“The only way they can get out is to walk, unless you’re going to take a boat in there, but that’s it. Other than that, they’re trapped in there and this happened since four o’clock this morning,” Freeman said.
