Tropical Storm Harvey brings flood hazards, like gators
MISSOURI CITY, Texas - The floods from now-Tropical Storm Harvey has turned backyards into lakes and not one but two alligators were spotted taking advantage of the extra space to swim.
Arlene Kelsch of Missouri City, Texas, just outside of Houston, recorded the two alligators swimming in her backyard on Sunday after her backyard was flooded.
"So here's the gator moving along," she says on the video, "just kind of taking his time. He's inside the fence again," she explains.
"And now it looks like there's not only him, but now him!" she says, pointing out the second gator and his proximity to her back patio.
Kelsch posted the video on Instagram with the caption: "OK, Hurricane Harvey...1 was enough, I don't need 2!"
