From ABC13 Houston, a heart-breaking photo was posted online of senior citizens trapped in their nursing home in Dickinson, Texas and the water was up to their waist line.

A member of the National Guard who asked to keep his identity private said:

The house was pretty much underwater.

Emergency Management Coordinator for the city of Dickinson David Popoff told Chron:

The Mayor issued an evacuation warning for low-lying areas and people that were medically fragile and for some reason they didn’t evacuate.
