Man left with only 2 bags of belongings after escaping flooded Houston home

HOUSTON — A man and his family were able to escape their home in Houston — but only with the few belongings he was able to salvage.

In a devestating video posted by ABC13 Houston, Reporter Jeff Ehling is interviewing resident Patrick Renteria.

Renteria says he and his family had to escape their flooded home, and were only able to gather two garbage bags full of possessions.

Renteria breaks down, and Ehling becomes emotional as well.
