According to CNN:

Homes washed away

Thursday night unfolded like a horrific movie for 26-year old White Sulphur Springs resident Chad Agner.
“The flooding looked like the ocean, there were these big waves,” Agner said.
As the rain intensified Anger, who was planning to grab dinner with a friend, decided to head to his apartment instead, only to find his neighbor submerged in knee-deep floodwater.
“The water was so high,” Agner said and decided against going inside his apartment to retrieve his belongings.
