(KPRC) Mario Gallardo, 62, says he had little choice when he left his dog behind as flood waters approached his Houston, Texas home on May 31.
“When I left here, never in a million years could I guess it was going to come up this high,” Gallardo said.
Gallardo lost a leg to diabetes and he’s on dialysis. He also has history of heart disease.
He says he left his house high and dry on Memorial Day, but returned a few hours later to find water in the streets and police enforcing a mandatory evacuation.
