DUFORT NEWS by Rachel Thompson
Saturday night your reporter and family found themselves in the middle of a flooded road. The car drowned out and Mr. Thompson had to crawl out on the hood and stand on the bumper to take the fan belt off the motor, in order to back out of the water. He didn’t think the water was very deep when we stared through but it was level with the floor of the car. Seems the little creek was too much for the old bridge. By morning the water was running within its boundaries.
