‘The water was up to the roofline of the homes and that’s what prevented the people from being able to get away,’ said Captain James Muniz of the Palestine Police Department.

‘The water just came up too fast.’

He said that six to 10 homes in a Palestine cul-de-sac were severely damaged following heavy rainfall over the course of just a few minutes after midnight.

All other residents of the cul-de-sac were accounted for, he said.

City crews found the five bodies near one of the homes before dawn after the floodwaters had receded.

As controversial as this scripture may seem, but as it is written in scripture when there is a calamity or a disaster in a city:

Amos 3:6:
6If a trumpet is blown in a city will not the people tremble? If a calamity occurs in a city has not the LORD done it?
