EAGLE PASS – Ten inches of rain inundated Eagle Pass overnight and Maverick County reported 60 water rescues during the height of the flash flood. One of the hardest hit areas was along Seco Creek, where the rising water came up so quickly, it caught a lot of people by surprise.
“I didn’t think it was going to come up this much but it did. Very fast,” said Joe Barrientos from the doorway of his damaged home. A four foot high water mark lined the outside of his home and muddy water coated the floor. He and his family watched the water all night and got out at 11:30 pm with no time to spare.
“Once it started jumping the curb, that’s when I rushed in. I tried to drive my truck in so I get my family out. When we got in the truck, the water was already up here,” he said gesturing to his stoop with his foot. The family only had time to grab some clothes. Barrientos’ friends were helping carry out furniture Friday afternoon. “Seco” means dry in Spanish, but nothing inside his home was spared.
“We just have to, I guess look forward to another start. We bought everything brand new for the house. Everything is gone.”
Their home was supposed to be their fresh start. They moved in two months ago and planned to buy it but had not gotten insurance yet. Now they have nowhere to go.
“We’re okay. I mean. Our lives I think are the most important thing,” he said. The family had just started saving up for Christmas, but will have to spend that money to replace everything they lost.
There are few things more important than your family's health.

TORONTO (AP) — Backup infielder Hanser Alberto singled home the go-ahead run in the 14th inning and the Texas Rangers beat the Toronto Blue Jays 6-4 Friday for a 2-0 lead in the best-of-five American League Division Series.
The underdog Rangers will try to sweep the Blue Jays in Game 3 Sunday in Texas. Colby Lewis will start for Texas against Marco Estrada.
Alberto, only in the lineup because star third baseman Adrian Beltre was out with a strained back, made an error that led to Toronto's first run. He delivered an RBI single with two outs in the 14th, and Delino DeShields followed with an infield hit for another run.
Texas shut out the highest-scoring team in the majors after the fifth inning. The victory made road teams 5-0 in the postseason so far.
Keone Kela (1-0) worked one inning for the win, staying calm after a dust-up with Toronto slugger Josh Donaldson. Ross Ohlendorf, with an old-school, double-armed windup, finished for a first save. LaTroy Hawkins (0-1) took the loss.
