Stranded campers rescued by flat bottom-boats Sunday some even carried out of the Red Creek Off Road, an RV campground. The campground was holding a large event called Mudbug Bash over the weekend.

"Started crying,"

Trucks and RVs at the campground flooded by the fast moving water.

"Right now is nothing that we can do it's today to try to get our trucks back this way," said Leonardo Olideirae, lives in New Orleans.

Flooding wasn't isolated to this campground.

"It rained a lot last night and it flooded," said Julie Hagmann, home flooded in D’Iberville.

Neighborhoods in D’Iberville, Mississippi became submerged. Cars swallowed by yesterday's storm.

"Two cars a truck and a brand new John Deere tractor and in air-conditioning unit," said Hagmann.

"We're used to it happens all the time well it's been about 10 years since it's been this deep it came up too fast so hours it went from nothing to 4 or 5 feet deep," said Chad Simpson, lives in D’Iberville.

A spokesman for George County EMA says thankfully no one was hurt. For the next 24 to 48 hours’ waters will be rising even higher before it starts to recede.
