As Floodwaters Rose in Kentucky, a Panicked Granddaughter Shared a Photo and a SOS

From a Washington Post story by Jonathan Edwards headlined “As floodwaters rose, a panicked granddaughter shared a photo and a SOS”:

Missy Crovetti panicked Thursday when she was forwarded a photo of her nearly 100-year-old grandma sitting on her bed, partially submerged in the floodwaters that were ravaging eastern Kentucky.

The picture showed Mae Amburgey — or “MomMae,” as Crovetti calls her — wearing capri pants and a turquoise sweater that was already halfway soaked. Amburgey had clasped her hands around her right knee; the lower part of her legs disappeared into the muck. Around her: an overturned dresser, artwork made by her grandson, a pillow topped with one of her shoes and a box of Little Debbie Nutty Buddy bars
