Deadly Floods Rage Through Polygamist Warren Jeffs' Utah Town, Spark Doomsday Fears
Life-or-death drama unfolded in Hildale, Utah, as women in old-time prairie dresses helped rescue a friend from a car during a dangerous flash flood.
At least 10 people have been found dead in the floods, and others are still missing.
Then the women and other rescuers formed a human chain to pluck children to safety from the vehicle.
In a video, women in pioneer clothing can only stand and watch as rescuers used bulldozers to clear the debris.
The dramatic rescue took place in the town of Hildale on the border of Utah and Arizona. It's the same town where disgraced polygamist Warren Jeffs once ruled like a king.
Jeffs was sentenced to life in 2011 after being convicted of sexually abusing girls. He had as many as 75 wives.
The deadly floods raging across Utah are now stoking fears among some in the state that doomsday is imminent. The date for the so-called “Armegeddon” is Sept. 28.
Matt Putnam, owner of a Utah store called Emergency Essentials, said there's been a run on supplies, leaving his shelves half-empty.
“We do our best to fill this every day. Sometimes it's just gone, almost instantaneously,” he told INSIDE EDITION.
TV shows like Doomsday Preppers feature survivalists who believe the end of the world could be coming.
Most people scoff at the doomsday prophets. But one thing's for sure: the deadly floods are very real.
