Rose Vemente says the bottom floor was flooded on Sept. 11, but the biggest deluge came on Friday, Sept. 25. She says the water rose about 10 inches taking over her backyard, living room, pantry and everything in between.
Vemente has lived at her Kealakekua home since 1995 and hasn't seen anything like this.
"Not no stream. It was one river!" exclaimed Vemente. "Everything went all in there. Everything was just floating up."
A lot of mud was left behind. Vemente says the family is living on the third floor now trying to dig their belongings out of the mud. She says she's grateful that everyone is OK including her two small dogs.
