  • Flash Flood

    It was 5 p.m. on a Sunday evening and Trisha Crawley’s great-uncle was sitting at his computer in his apartment. As the 86-year-old sat typing, his feet began to feel strange, like they were wet. Looking down, he found water surrounding his feet and covering the entire floor of his apartment.
