Her house is dark and flooded and furniture is strewed all around her.

More than 80,000 people commented on the video, with many people fearing for her safety, while others wondered why she didn’t evacuate when the mandatory warnings went into effect.

Many people feared the worst, but Beth provided a follow-up video later that day saying she was alive and begging for help.

She says, “If you could see me now, I’m alive, still floating in water, someone needs to come help me.”


I’m alive!!!

Beth has been silent since then, but someone claiming to be her friend said she was rescued from her home but doesn’t currently have wifi to post an update.
