HICKMAN COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — Group customers have raised a lot more than $6,000 to aid a family whose home was washed absent by flood waters in Hickman County about the weekend.
An EMS supervisor helping with restoration attempts captured now-viral video clip exhibiting the dwelling belonging to Glen and Cindy Hampton, as it was ripped from its basis, and carried down Garners Creek.
The couple’s son, Travis Dean Hampton explained his mothers and fathers moved to the space two many years back to retire. Their possessions have been all ruined in the flood, he discussed.
“Imagine the horror of waking up very first thing in the morning and looking at the h2o arrive up,” Hampton explained to Information 2.
“You just see the home rise up off its basis and get started transferring down river,” he spelled out. “To add insult to damage, it smashes into a tree, cracks open, and all your possessions, anything you’ve worked for, your reminiscences, all just spill out, and go into a river and you in no way come across them once more.”
Hampton began a GoFundMe web page to increase funds to help his parents. That fund has lifted hundreds of bucks, as of Wednesday morning.
