Millie, her husband, sister and brother-in-law got stuck in the flood waters when their Jeep stalled. A student from South Dakota Mines and Technology got them in his station wagon. They then had to climb to the roof of the car and on to various roofs of floating homes until eventually the five of them spent the evening in an attic.
