Several Rescued from Fayette County Floodwaters

Fayette County authorities were involved in a couple flood rescues on Thursday. The Sheriff’s Office says they received a report of a person trapped in a vehicle that had been overcome by water at the 18000 block of Highway 93. Deputies were the first to arrive and found 24-year old Deangelo Bivins of Westgate in his vehicle. They say Bivins had tried to drive through water on the road and his vehicle stalled. While rescuing Bevins, deputies also found a woman and two dogs stranded at a home along 150th Street. Water had surrounded the house and started coming in the front door. Deputies noticed a 500-gallon LP tank that was starting to float towards the home too. The Sheriff’s Office says everyone was rescued and no one was injured.
