The house disappeared into the raging waters of the Baker River Monday as the storm took old in the town of Warren.

“My grandparents, my dad and uncle helped build that house," she said. "Everything of my grandparents was in there." 

She added that it was “awful” to watch the video, saying, "It was like someone died in your family watching that. It was shocking. I kept rewinding.”

"Thank God it happened when we weren’t there," she added. "If it had happened when we were sleeping, we would have had no idea what was going on. The bedroom was one of the parts that went down the river."
