Watch alligator swim in woman's flooded backyard after Storm Harvey


A woman from Texas spotted two alligators swimming in her flooded backyard during Storm Harvey on Sunday.

A video shot by Arlene Gonzalez Kelsch from Missouri City, near Houston, shows two alligators swimming in flood water around her yard following heavy rains from the storm.

The two alligators managed to swim into the yard through a dip in the fence which is a dent from last year’s storm.

“Holy crap was my reaction,” Kelsch told the Houston Chronicle. “I felt relatively safe seeing them, it’s kind of cool. As long as I don’t open my door, I’m fine, but it’s still a little creepy.”

The slow-moving storm has brought catastrophic flooding to Texas, killed at least nine people and led to mass evacuations and paralyzed Houston, the fourth most-populous U.S. city.
