As water inched higher and higher into Nicole and Chris Yarbrough’s home Wednesday night, they grabbed their pets and headed for the attic.

“The water just came in really fast,” said Nicole, adding that the couple moved into the home on Latham Road just two months earlier.

Flash flooding Wednesday night damaged cars and homes in Latham Park, and other areas around Greensboro. One homeowner reported nearly two feet of water from nearby Buffalo Creek in his home.

Restoration crews brought fans into houses as homeowners took furniture to the curb.

“Most of it’s the floors, so they’re ripping up our carpet now and our wooden floors are covered in a layer of mud,” Nicole said.
