After floodwaters from Hurricane Matthew filled her home, Jodi Gaddy prayed that someone would find her before the alligators swimming outside came into her home. Gaddy said there were helicopters overhead, but despite her attempts to contact them, no one noticed her signals. For three days, she lived in fear, but was finally rescued when her son drove from Texas and then climbed through the downed trees in her yard to get to the house. Afterwards, Gaddy said her memories of the home she lived in for 27 years were replaced by trauma. She added, “It was the worst thing. I don’t wish that on anybody. I don’t think I’ll ever go back to that house.” –By Jim L. Wilson & Jim Sandell
