BACLIFF – When it rains, it pours.

On Friday, heavy rain turned a neighborhood at the intersection of 15th Street and Bacliff Drive in Bacliff into a mini lake.

KPRC 2 spoke to residents who had water inside their home.

“It is what it is. I can’t change it,” resident Monica Carmichael said.

Residents had to use boats, ATVs, and big trucks to get home.

Crews with Kemah Fire and Rescue, The Bacliff Volunteer Fire Department and Dickinson Fire and Rescue were on standby in case people had to be rescued from their homes or had medical emergencies.

Cheli Torres, who lives on Bacliff Drive, said she has had enough of the rain.

“I woke up and I got out the bed and my feet were submerged in water,” Torres said.

The heavy rain flooded Cheli’s home.

“It’s devastation all over again. This is the same thing with Harvey, the same thing. I can’t say it any other way,” Torres said.

The storm drains could not keep up with mother nature and residents said it is time for the rain to go away.

“It’s frustrating,” Carmichael said.
