Creech leapt up to investigate, while Moore stayed in bed.
“I sat there, just panicked,” Moore said. “I realized the air conditioner went off and all the power went out. And then I could hear the water rushing like a waterfall — just rushing river water.”
Suddenly, Creech shouted to Moore from the kitchen.
“He kept saying, ‘We’ve got to get out, we’ve got to get out — the house is falling,’” Moore said. “That took a second to register, but I jumped up and took off out of the bedroom, but realized that I didn’t have my glasses on. So I grabbed my glasses and my little dog Jake and ran out into the hallway.”
Moore didn’t get very far — she actually ran into the hallway wall, which had fallen down and was blocking her path.
