Alligators, Snakes Are Real Problem For Texas Flood Victims [VIDEO]

No sharks though, that was already proven wrong. That article touched on the possibility of alligators swimming around in the flood waters of Houston and surrounding communities, and that part is true.

See how fire ants in Texas are handling the flood.

Arlene Kelsch lives near Lake Olympia in Texas, a suburb of Houston just to the southwest, and she’s seen some alligators in her yard due to the flooding. Normally she has a fence which would prevent anything from entering her yard, but since the water levels are well over the top of that fence, the ‘gators can just swim on in. Her house is just high enough on a hill to have stayed dry, but being surrounded by water and alligators has sort of prevented her from venturing out into her yard. Check out a video she recorded yesterday of a couple ‘gators having a nice relaxing swim:

The bigger problem is the snakes. The snakes have been displaced by the water, and they’re looking for dry ground. Being so close to the water yet still dry, she’s keeping a close watch out for snakes, not just around her home, but actually in her home.


You can donate to the Red Cross to help relief efforts for the flood victims too, see details here.
