Families On Campus Talk About Georgia Floods
For the past week, Georgia has been hit with some of the worst weather in the state’s history. Nine people were killed in the storms and many roadways and interstates were blocked because of the over-flow of water.
Elon mom Jean O’Brien had to drive through it all to get here for family weekend.
“This is like a hundred-year flood they talk about…I’ve lived there for 30 years and it’s never flooded…but our whole back-yard and front-yard…the whole neighborhood just disappeared underwater,” O’Brien said
O’Brien braved the dangerous flood waters with her 93-year old mother Jean Bezkor, and drove to Elon to visit her daughter.
O’Brien had no idea the storm would reach the magnitude it did.
Nana Bezkor is glad the storm didn’t keep her away from visiting her granddaughter for the special weekend. “I live in Atlanta, Georgia, which is a 6 hour drive, and I would not be here if it weren’t that my granddaughter was at the end of that 6-hour drive.”
