Walla Walla resident, Laurie Logsdon, awoke Friday morning to find her backyard underwater. Logsdon’s property sits near Mill Creek, and over 20 feet of it was engulfed in rushing water. She describes hearing a roaring noise Thursday night. When she walked outside the next morning, she found her back fence broken down, her horses scared, and her yard turned to swamp land.
“This morning I come out and I've lost 20 to 30 feet of property and my fence is floating,” says Logsdon. “And so my horses had to be moved out. They can't be in here now…and this is a very expensive fence. "
Logsdon estimates her fence will cost at least a couple thousand dollars to replace, and she has no flood insurance to help with the cost.
Residents in the area say the last time the creek flooded was in 1996.
