Flooding has disrupted life for many in the Lone Star State. Kellie Moore was at her bakery in Austin yesterday when the water levels began to rise.

“It was crazy,” Moore told Kai Ryssdal. “I looked in the back room and I noticed that water was coming through the building … [I] was trying to sop it up, but then it started coming into the kitchen and into the front of our showroom, and there was no way to stop the water.”
